A man who showed up at Trident Medical Center with a gunshot wound early Sunday morning told police somebody shot him while he was driving on Interstate 526.

About 4:40 a.m. Sunday, a North Charleston police officer was sent to Trident Medical Hospital to check out a reported shooting victim. The officer found that Levi Thomas Brown, 30, of Greenhill Road in Moncks Corner had been shot in the left shoulder, according to the incident report.

Brown told the officer that he and a friend had driven to Charlie O’s in his friend’s mother’s car, but the club was closed and they were heading toward the IHOP on Centre Pointe Drive and got on I-526 from Dorchester Road.

When they were approaching the Montague Road exit, a gray or silver older-model Dodge Durango pulled up beside them and a man with long dreadlocks wearing a dark baseball hat leaned out the back passenger side window and opened fire, according to the report.

Brown told the officer he doesn’t know who would want to shoot him and he doesn’t know anybody with a Durango. He also said he is not affiliated with any gangs or illegal activity.
