CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – People who live in Palmilla Apartments in West Ashley say they still feel safe in their homes despite a shooting late Saturday night.

This shooting sent a 13-year-old boy to the hospital.

People who live in the compound say a lot of the violence tends to happen near the back of the compound and not where they live up front.

However, Margarita Soto-Perez, who says she has lived at the compound for five years, says her building was a few meters from where the child was shot. She says she heard two shots which she said were from two different guns sometime after 10 p.m.

Charleston police responded to the call around 10:50 p.m.

Investigators say there are no current updates on the case, but they say the investigation is ongoing and are still asking for the public’s help. There is no information on what led to the shooting or a possible suspect.

Soto-Perez says new management has taken over the resort in recent weeks.

“Yeah, I don’t go out, just to pick up papers and stuff,” Soto-Perez said. “And I have confidence in the new owners. I was ready to move, but the new owners… I trust. They’ve already installed cameras, they’re going to install a lot more cameras, we have security guards coming through here at night, they’re going to put up a big fence. It’s going to be OK. Because many of us are disabled here. We have disabilities. That’s why we are here.

Palmilla Apartments did not respond to a request for comment.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Charleston County Dispatch Center and ask for the Charleston Central Detective on duty at 843-743-7200.
