Mount Pleasant police are searching for a 24-year-old West Ashley man suspected in the shooting last week at Remley’s Point.

Darryl Nicholas Evans II, 24, last known to reside at 36 Ashley Hall Plantation Road, is wanted on charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon in the commission of a violent crime. He is believed to have ties to downtown Charleston, according to a news release.

A man, who has not yet been identified, was shot just before 8:25 p.m. Wednesday while walking on a road near Holy Trinity AME Church. He then walked across nearby Mathis Ferry Road and collapsed in the River’s Walk Apartments parking lot, according to Inspector Chip Googe.

Residents in the area rendered aid and called police. The man was taken to an area hospital but his condition is still unknown.

Googe said Monday that the shooting was not random and the victim was the intended target. He has declined to release how many times the man was shot, what motive there was for the shooting or 911 calls in the case.
