Armed robbery ends in shooting, perpetrators flee

  • Thursday, May 9, 2013

An early Sunday shooting sent a man to the hospital and left at least one suspect on the run after a robbery attempt, according to a statement released by the Goose Creek Police Department.
On Sunday at about 4:11 a.m. officers were dispatched to 417 Madeline Drive after gunshots were heard.
Officers were told a male victim, 31, had been shot several times. Police and EMS workers found him bleeding inside a bathroom in the residence, according to an incident report. He was transported to MUSC.
A second victim, a 34-year-old female, told police two unknown males followed her and the male victim to the address listed above and attempted to rob them at gunpoint. The shots were fired after a struggle; the suspect followed the victims home and demanded money.
The gun was described as a silver revolver with a short barrel. A neighbor who lives across the street from where the shooting took place told police he was awoken by three gunshots. When he looked outside he saw a burgundy vehicle with a loud muffler and no lights on driving down the street, according to the report.
