West Ashley homicide victim’s identity released

The identity of the man who was fatally shot in West Ashley early Thursday trying to climb in a window has been released.

He was Zackary Aiken, 22, according to the Charleston County Coroner’s Office. The incident report from Charleston police said he lived on Midland Drive in North Charleston.

The shooting was reported around 12:45 a.m. at 1900 Hazelwood Drive. The Orleans Gardens neighborhood is across Orleans Road from Citadel Mall.

The incident appears to be domestic related, and the man trying to climb in the window knew the people inside the apartment, police spokesman Charles Francis said. Police didn’t say who fired the shot.

Police didn’t release any new information Friday.
