The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting in Ladson.

Officials say deputies responded just before 10:00 Monday night to Temple Road, which is near College Park Road.

A source tells News 2 a helicopter and several law enforcement agencies were on the scene at Stratford High School, which is about two miles from Temple Road and the alleged shooting.

News 2 is told that the alleged victim, who is now deceased, was airlifted from Stratford High School.

News 2 spoke with the alleged victim's mother, Tonya Bradley, around 4:30 am on Tuesday. Bradley says she first got a phone call that her son had been shot. She then rushed to the Medical University of South Carolina where the teen was airlifted, "So we went to the hospital got in there with the Chaplin who couldn't really tell me much. But as soon as the nurse got in there she said your son has 5 shots - one in his throat, his chest, his side, his back, and one went through his leg and my son is 15 years old."
