WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCBD) – Authorities announced the arrest of a 34-year-old man for a deadly shooting that happened at a West Ashley sports bar overnight.
According to the Charleston Police Department, dispatch had received multiple calls about a disturbance at Players Place Billiards off Ashley River Road, which they said resulted in a shooting just after 2:00 a.m.
