Local News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities are investigating a shooting that left two people injured Wednesday afternoon in West Ashley.

Officials with the Charleston Police Department said the shooting happened at the Palmilla Parkside Apartments off Ashley River Road and on Rice Drive, which is adjacent to the apartment complex.

Two people were injured – one at the apartment complex and another on Rice Drive. Both were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening, according to CPD.

Police tell News 2 at least one of the buildings was hit by gunfire and multiple shell casings were found in the area. An investigation is ongoing.

Neighbors confirmed that they heard what sounded like gunshots or fire crackers.

Although police said there was no ongoing threat, some residents were uneasy about what happened so close to home.

“I don’t sleep far from here. That makes me uncomfortable,” said Jackie Turner, who lives nearby.

He continued, saying “I know people have their differences, but to take somebody’s life, that’s not the answer.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 843-743-7200 and ask for the on-duty CPD central detective. Anyone with information wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry at 843-554-1111.
