Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Club Rehab on Dorchester Road early Sunday morning for the report of a shooting.
When they arrived at 2 a.m., they found one subject lying on the ground in a large pool of blood with a North Charleston police officer rendering first aid; another subject sitting on the ground in handcuffs; one handgun on the ground; and three handguns on the hood of a tan Chrysler.
A large crowd of people had gathered and multiple NCPD officers were on scene.
According to information given deputies by NCPD, gunfire was exchanged between Club Rehab security personnel and two subjects in the Chrysler.
Security officers told police, according to the report, that they heard gunfire and began to “protectively sweep the parking lot for shooters with their weapons drawn.”
They observed two individuals at the entrance, one with a weapon in his hand. They ordered him to drop the weapon. The man did not so they opened fire with their handguns.
Deputies observed multiple bullet holes in the vehicle as well as multiple shells on the ground.
The wounded subject was transported to MUSC.
The incident is under investigation by DCSO.
While DCEMS Medic 6 was responding to a shooting on Dorchester Rd., at Club Rehab, a vehicle slammed into the back of the rig.
EMS personnel were out of the ambulance tending to the patient when the crash occured. According to EMS Director Douglas Warren, it will be a couple of weeks before an estimate of damages is available. According to Highway Patrol, “A 2005 Saturn driven by Kennith Kellett of Summerville was traveling beside the ambulance and a 2009 Saturn driven by Peter Dodge of Charleston struck the 2005 in the rear. The 2009 Saturn then struck the ambulance on the back drivers side. Peter Dodge was found contributing and was arrested for DUI. Kennith Kellett was not contributing but was also arrested for DUI. Both subjects were taken to the hospital before being taken to Dorchester County detention center. The subjects refused blood alcohol testing.”
