A 14-year-old North Charleston boy who died Monday of injuries from a gunshot wound has been identified.

Eisa Shourpaje was fatally shot at a convenience store on Dorchester Road. The shooting apparently involved one other person. 

After police received a call Sunday morning about a shooting, they arrived to find one person injured with a gunshot wound in the Valero parking lot at 7757 Dorchester Road.

An officer then observed a male running from the gas station and stopped him, and the male indicated the possibility of a second victim.

The officer then saw a blood trail across the road and followed it to 7791 Dorchester Road to find another person injured with a gunshot wound in the head, holding a black pistol. Both were transported to the hospital.

Shourpaje died around 10 p.m. Monday at Medical University Hospital, according to the Charleston County coroner. Police did not release the condition of the other person involved in the shooting, but said the person is still alive.

The North Charleston police is investigating the "convoluted" incident, said spokeswoman Karley Ash. Police currently have evidence in transit that they hope will reveal more. 

They are not looking for any suspects, as police believe only two parties were involved in the shooting.

According to Charleston County School District officials, Shourpaje was a student at Turning Point Academy, an alternative high school program for struggling students. They had no other comment at this time.
