According to police, the shooting happened around 8:50 p.m. on Sequoia Street. Officials say Miles' died of a gunshot wound.
We talked to a resident who tried to help the victim. Kevin asked us to not show his face.
"There was no heartbeat, there was no pulse. I came to try to get my wife, she's a nurse, and it was too late," Kevin said. "There was one little tear in his eye and that was it."
Charleston Police officers and detectives were back in the Ardmore Subdivision Thursday morning talking to residents.
They searched an apartment and had a car towed from the complex's parking lot.
Police spokesman Charles Francis would only say it was part of the murder investigation.
No suspect and no possible motive have been identified at this time.
