NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV) — North Charleston PD spokesperson Spencer Pryor has released new information about the suspects in Monday night’s shooting at Northwoods Mall.

Shortly before 5:30 p.m., officers responded to Northwoods Mall following reports of shots fired.

After arriving at the scene, officers learned that two black males were involved in an altercation inside of a store called ‘Lim’s,’ when one of the men pulled out a handgun and fired a shot inside the store, shattering the glass of the store and a nearby shop.

Both males ran out of Lim’s and into the mall.

The suspects are described as black males between 5’8 and 6′ tall. One was wearing a white shirt and white pants and the other was wearing a gray shirt, black pants and walked with a limp.

NCPD also released a security camera image which shows the suspect who fired the gun.

After police were able to clear the mall, they escorted employees back inside to secure their businesses. The mall remained closed for the night with plans to reopen on the 4th of July.

No one was injured in the shooting, but a woman running out of the mall fell and sustained a cut to the leg area. She was treated by EMS.

Hanahan Police, Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, SLED and SC Highway Patrol, and Berkeley County police assisted the North Charleston Police Department.

Anyone with information on the suspects should contact North Charleston Police at 843-740-2800 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
