Police: 13-year-old shoots teen during argument over gangs

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police investigators arrested a 13-year-old accused of shooting a 14-year-old boy during an argument over gangs.

On Sunday afternoon, a police officer responded to Accabee Road and Appleton Avenue in reference to a shooting.

The officer met the 14-year-old victim who had a gunshot wound to his right arm. The victim said he was shot by a 13-year-old boy during a verbal altercation.

A witness, a 61-year-old man, told investigators that the incident started when he was driving an SUV in which the victim and suspect were riding in.

According to the witness, the victim and the suspect were arguing about rival gangs. Police say during the argument, the witness stopped his vehicle on Appleton Avenue and let the victim out of the vehicle.

The witness said he thought the teens were going to fight, but the suspect, who was seated behind the witness, said,"There isn't going to be a fight."

Investigators say the suspect then took out a gun and began firing at the victim. The witness told police he then reached behind his seat and began pushing the suspect's arm and body while the boy was shooting.

According to police, the suspect was able to shoot the victim in the forearm before leaving the area.

Police say the witness and the victim then drove to West Surrey Drive before reporting the incident. Authorities say the witness then drove to meet police at the incident scene.

Officers then found the suspect based on information given by witnesses. According to police, the suspect was attempting to leave when officers arrived.

A police report states the gun used in the shooting was also located where the suspect was found.
