Police search for men involved in Northwoods Mall shooting

Share

Police are searching for two suspects who exchanged gunfire at Northwoods Mall Monday afternoon.

Pryor says there were no injuries from the actual shooting, although a woman who was running fell and scrapped her knee. Glass shattered inside Lim's and a nearby business following the gunfire.

Pryor described the suspects as two black males 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall. One had a white shirt and black trousers, and the other was wearing a black shirt and black shorts. The other wore a gray shirt with black shorts and walked "with what appeared to be a limp".

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey told The Post and Courier that no one was injured, although there was some damage to mall property. Police say that they are now searching for the two men, who reportedly left the mall shortly after firing on each other.

Officers with the North Charleston police and the Charleston County Sheriff's Office are on scene.

Mela Aliento, a manager at Fuji Steakhouse, says she heard one gunshot from the bar. Police later said that it had not been an active shooter situation but rather an isolated incident between two people.

People were evacuated from the mall and it did not reopen on Monday night.

This is a developing story.
