shots fired near the entrance to Ambrose Run apartments on Parris Island Gateway. They met
with two victims who reported that while they were leaving the apartment complex in their
vehicle they spoke to an individual who was walking. The victims were acquainted with the
individual who for reasons unknown at this time pulled out a pistol and fired two shots at the
victims. The shots hit the car and narrowly missed the occupants. The victims sped off to a safe
location and called police. The suspect was identified as 16 year old Mykel Deyshawn Johnson
