Three nearby schools were on lockdown yesterday in a usually quiet bedroom community near Charleston. Thursday afternoon Mt. Pleasant Police Captain Stan Gragg says they received a call reporting gun shots heard in the area of a Mt. Pleasant apartment complex going toward Sullivans Island. Three victims were involved in the shooting. One person is dead and two are injured.
“The continued investigation revealed the third victim in condo 1511 and he was in fact deceased. The female had suffered a gun shot wound also and she was transported to MUSC and the other Hispanic male victim was sustained injuries in reference to an assault and he was transported to East Cooper where he was treated and released,” says Gragg.
Captain Gragg says he cannot release a motive in the shooting.
“We’re still following up some leads that are coming in as we speak. We’ve had numerous leads on the case. Still following leads and tracking down some witness statements, and gathering as much evidence as we possibly can,” says Gragg.
The female victim is in stable condition. No arrests have been reported.
