CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Five adults were injured by gunfire during a shooting in downtown Charleston early Sunday morning.
Officers with the Charleston Police Department responded to the area of King Street and Morris Street around 12:55 a.m. where several people were struck by gunfire.
Police say the victims are being treated at area hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries.
“Six people were initially thought to be injured by gunfire, but it has since been determined that one of those suffered an abrasion after falling, not a gunshot wound,” said Sgt. Elisabeth Wolfsen, a spokeswoman for the department.
Several people were detained during the initial response and investigation.
Two of those individuals have since been arrested and charged with firearm violations, including 20-year-old Tyvone Davis and a 16-year-old juvenile, whose name will not be released.
Davis is being charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon. As of Monday, he is being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center on a $25,000 bond.
