NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - North Charleston police say one person was transported to MUSC Wednesday night following a shooting in North Charleston.

Police say shortly after 9 p.m., officers responded to the area of Montague Avenue and Gaynor Street for a shooting. Officers located the victim who was on the ground next to a Chevrolet Tahoe.

Authorities say the victim was suffering from a gunshot wound and was transported to MUSC. The victim's condition is not known.

According to investigators, it is believed that a dark in colored sedan pulled up alongside the Tahoe while traveling on Montague Avenue when shots were fired, striking the victim's vehicle.

A large police presence was spotted at the railroad tracks on E. Montague Ave blocking portions of the road as authorities investigated the scene. Police were also seen looking at an SUV which appeared to be damaged.

A witness in the area reported hearing 7 to 10 shots.

NCPD investigators say there is currently no further information on suspects or motive.

This is the fifth shooting in two days in North Charleston. Three shootings happened on Tuesday within six hours of each other. However, officers say the shootings are not related.

Officers continue to search for the person who shot a man outside of the Clarion Inn on Dorchester Road around 4 p.m. on Tuesday.

Police are also investigating a double shooting that happened four hours later on Osceola and Cherokee streets. Officers say two people were shot in the back. They say someone jumped out of a Nissan 4-door and began firing at them.

Officers have arrested and charged two men in the third shooting that happened in North Charleston on Tuesday. One man had been shot in the face along Cricket Ct.

Christopher Fultz and Anthony Brown Jr are charged with attempted murder and weapons charges.

A fourth shooting occurred early Wednesday morning following a convenience store robbery. Police say the suspect took a store clerks gun and fired shots as he was running from the business. No one was injured. The incident remains under investigation.
