Man shot while driving on Dorchester Road

A driver was shot Wednesday afternoon while driving down Dorchester Road, authorities said.

North Charleston police officers responded to the area of Dorchester Road and West Surrey Drive to meet with the victim, according to police spokesman Spencer Pryor.

The driver of a Ford Taurus told officers that he was traveling east on Dorchester Road near Stark Lane when the driver of a gray Chevrolet vehicle pulled up alongside him and fired shots at his vehicle.

The driver was struck in the hip and treated by emergency medical workers, Pryor said. The man was unable to provide police with a description of the gunman.

The incident remains under investigation.
