Woman calls police, reports being shot at while driving in North Charleston

A Hanahan woman called police Thursday afternoon and reported being shot at while driving through North Charleston, authorities said.

The woman drove home after the incident and called Hanahan police, but it is believed to have occurred off Rivers Avenue near Greenridge Road, Hanahan police Lt. Michael Fowler said.

Hanahan police called Charleston County authorities about the shooting at 4:11 p.m., according to officials with Charleston County’s Consolidated 911 Dispatch Center.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said officers met with the woman shortly after 4 p.m. and she alleged she was “shot upon” about 3:45 p.m. while she was driving eastbound on Rivers Avenue, passing Greenridge Road.

The woman said her windows were partially down when she heard a man scream and then three gunshots, that she told police passed through the open driver’s window and out the open passenger’s window without hitting anything.

Officers found no damage on the woman’s vehicle, Pryor said. Officers also checked the area and did not find any evidence of a crime scene.

The officers who checked the area told Pryor that the traffic was heavy and they spoke to people at Dial America, who said they did not hear or see anything. There were also no calls to dispatch of the incident from anyone witnessing the incident, he said.
