North Charleston (SC) police probe shooting near little league game

Police in North Charleston (SC) are investigating a shooting outside of a little league baseball field Monday night that sent parents, fans and players ducking for cover in the middle of a game. No injuries were reported.

According to a police report obtained by USA TODAY Sports, officers heard dozens of gunshots at around 8:43 pm, coming from the parking lot of Pepperhill Park in North Charleston, where there are three youth baseball fields. When they arrived at the scene, officers spoke to witnesses who said that “a large group of teenagers pulled into the parking lot in separate vehicles and began to fist fight with each other.”

Witnesses then told police that the suspects began firing guns at each other before all suspects fled the scene in their cars. In a statement provided to USA TODAY Sports, North Charleston Police spokesperson Harve Jacobs said “several youth baseball games were underway when this incident occurred” and that the incident “had nothing to do with the Park, youth athletes, parents or coaches.”
