One man is dead and another is injured after a shooting in North Charleston on Sunday night, authorities said.

North Charleston police were called shortly before 8:40 p.m. to an apartment at 5411 Califf Road for a report of shots fired, agency spokesman Spencer Pryor said.

Officers found the body of 18-year-old El’Tajaris Carew Jr. of North Charleston, who had been fatally shot.

They also found a second man who'd been shot in the leg, authorities said. He was transported to Medical University Hospital. 

No arrests or suspects have been announced by police, and the investigation is ongoing.

Carew's death is the first homicide reported in North Charleston this year and the third in the tri-county area, according to a Post and Courier database.
