Charleston County Sheriff's Office is investigating a suspicious death Friday morning Hollywood.
Capt. Roger Antonio, spokesperson for the sheriff's office, says a woman was found dead near a vehicle along Church Flats Road.
Deputies originally were called to the scene about 8 a.m. for a reported suspicious vehicle parked on the side of the road, Antonio says.
When deputies arrived, they found a van parked on the side of the road near the bridge at Oyster House Creek.
Deputies also noticed shell casings on the road, and after looking further, they found the body of an African-American woman across the street lying off the roadway.
The sheriff's office says it appeared the woman was shot. Detectives and the coroner's officer are investigating further.
