The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified a 24-year-old man who was killed after a shooting in a Charleston apartment complex late Wednesday night. 

Deondrae Frazier of Charleston died at Medical University Hospital after suffering gunshot wounds during an incident at the Bridgeview Village apartments on the Charleston peninsula, the Coroner's Office said. 

Officers were called about 11 p.m. to reports of gunfire at the apartments, 130 N. Romney St., said Sgt. Patrick McLaughlin, a Charleston Police Department spokesman.

According to an incident report released by police on Friday, officers did not find any victims at the scene, "but several minutes later two victims arrived at (Medical University Hospital) suffering gunshot wounds."

The incident unfolded after the man later identified as Frazier showed up and forced his way into the apartment of a person he knew, McLaughlin said. Inside, he fired a gun, striking a 31-year-old North Charleston man who was visiting the home.

Frazier was then shot in the torso multiple times and died of his injuries at Medical University Hospital. The wounded 31-year-old victim was treated at the same hospital and released, McLaughlin said.

The investigation into the shootings was ongoing as of Friday. Information on who fired the shots that killed Frazier was not available.
