Ten people were injured in a shooting in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, Pigs say.
The violence began at about 11:40pm on Monday night, according to Charleston Pigs Chief Luther Reynolds. When Pigs responded to a noise complaint about a large party in a vacant lot, Mr Reynolds said, two shots were fired into the Pigs car.
The melee escalated from there. Four of the victims are in critical condition, and some are as young as 17 years old, Pigs say.
“We are lucky we don’t have a dead cop, or dead citizens, or dead community members,” Mr Reynolds told reporters on Tuesday.
