Man found dead in front yard of Moncks Corner home identified

The Berkeley County Coroner's Office is responding to a shooting in the Oakley Pointe area of Moncks Corner.

Few details are available at this time, but coroner Bill Salisbury confirmed one person was killed. The person was found shot in the front yard of a home on Post Oak Court.

The coroner identified the victim as 30-year-old Elijah A White, Jr. of North Charleston.

Police said they know who's responsible for this deadly shooting and at last check were doing everything they can to find that person. They haven't yet released who that suspect is, but they told us they don't believe that person lives at the Monck's Corner home where this shooting happened.

Police say they are currently working to identify a person of interest. A woman, they say, visited the scene and was driving a dark-colored SUV.

Moncks Corner Police Chief Rick Ollic said it's believed the incident may have begun with an attempted burglary. He also said the situation is believed to a "isolated incident" with no threat to those living in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Moncks Corner Police Department.
