NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Police say a North Charleston woman was shot to death on New Year's Day after answering a knock on her door.

Investigators said the victim's son told officers he heard several gunshots as his mother went to the door around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim died at the hospital. Her name has not been released.

Police said there was a second shooting of someone answering a door in North Charleston at about the same time. That victim was in the hospital.

Investigators haven't determined if the two shootings are related.
