A 25-year-old woman was shot to death early today outside a Charleston County nightclub.

Shortly after 4 a.m., the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Club Frazier’s at 4871 County Line Road in Ravenel, sheriff’s Maj. Jim Brady said in a news release.

Security guards told deputies they heard gunshots in the parking lot and saw a man running away from a vehicle in the lot.

When deputies arrived, they found a female who had suffered fatal injuries, Brady said.

Charleston County Deputy Coroner Kelly Kraus identified the victim as Dominique Grant, 25, of West Ashley. Grant died at the scene of a gunshot wound, Kraus said. An autopsy was planned for later today.

Deputies used a tracking dog to search the woods behind the business and found the track ended on Moberry Road, the release said.

A motive for the shooting was not known, the release said.
