NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — Three people were injured following a shooting in North Charleston Wednesday morning.

North Charleston Police responded to the 1900 block of English Street at 3:57 a.m. on April 12.

A man told investigators that he was sitting on the porch of a home in the 1900 block of English street when a red SUV drove by and opened fire, striking him in the arm. He told authorities that he didn’t know the suspect.

A woman said she was driving on English Street when she saw a dark SUV drive by her and started shooting. She ducked in order to avoid being hit. Her car was struck approximately five times. Her driver side window and back windows were shattered.

She had a “small interaction” on her lower back from the glass shattering. Medics transported both victims to a local hospital.

A person living at another home on English Street was struck approximately five times, according to an incident report. Two people inside the home said that they were sleeping and woke up to the sound of gunfire and then heard someone knocking on the door to call NCPD.

Officers found several shell casings in the street in front of 1934 and 1930 English Street.

No arrests have been made. If you have any information, contact your local law enforcement division or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
