Coroner identifies woman killed in Rock Creek Court murder-suicide (WCIV)

The Dorchester County coroner has released the name of a woman killed in a murder-suicide.

Silvia T. Flores, 52, was shot multiple times inside her home on Rock Creek Court, Dorchester County Coroner Paul Brouthers said.

The coroner says the shooting happened just before 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Flores died on the scene.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday at MUSC.

The North Charleston Police Department and the Dorchester County Coroner’s Office are investigating.

Charleston County dispatchers said a call about a domestic disturbance involving a weapon on Rock Creek Court led to an initial response from North Charleston Police.

Responding officers saw a man driving away from the scene at a high speed, and chased him down Ashley Phosphate, according to North Charleston Police Department spokesperson Spencer Pryor.

The chase ended in a crash. Officials say the man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His name has not been released.
