SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Summerville Police Department (SPD) on Wednesday responded to what they described as an “active incident” at the Bridge Point Apartment complex off of Trolley Road.
According to SPD, a report of a shooting came in shortly before 5:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Shell casings were found at the scene, but no injuries had been reported as of 5:30 p.m. At least one vehicle was struck by gunfire.
As of 7:00 p.m., officers said that the situation had escalated and the person believed to be responsible for the shooting was barricaded inside an apartment.
SPD’s SWAT Team was called in and, with the help of a family member, three people were peacefully taken into custody.
Shortly after 8:00 p.m., News 2 crews at the scene reported that SWAT breached the apartment using a flash bang. SPD said that officers took that precaution to sweep the apartment and ensure no one else was hiding inside.
SPD said that a vehicle may have fled from the scene and detectives are working to determine if more people were involved.
