Two people died and a third person was injured following a shootout Sunday night in North Charleston. 

Police were called around 9 p.m. to 2455 Prospect Drive, said Karley Ash, a North Charleston Police Department spokeswoman. Once they arrived, officers found Tariq Matthews, a 21-year-old from Moncks Corner, and Nathaniel Delesline, a 20-year-old from North Charleston, who both died of gunshot wounds at the scene.

A third person who had also been shot was transported to a hospital, Ash said.

"The subjects were in two separate, parked vehicles and exchanged gunfire at the time of the incident," she said. "The third subject was in one of the vehicles."

Investigators are working to find out how the third person was struck by gunfire, Ash said.

"Officers are working to determine the relationship between the subjects," she said.

Further information was not available on Monday.
