Coroner identifies man shot dead at North Charleston nightclub | New
NORTH CHARLESTON – Authorities have identified a man who died after being shot dead at a nightclub on Ashley Phosphate Road earlier this week.
Kadeem Felder, 30, died at 7:30 a.m. on May 19 at Trident Medical Center from a gunshot wound, according to the Charleston County Coroner’s Office.
Off-duty police officers were working security at 11:49 p.m. on May 18 at the Vibez Restaurant and Lounge, 2611 Ashley Phosphate Road, when large crowds began to flee the building, according to an incident report from the Police Department of North Charleston.
At first, some customers told police that someone dropped a bottle on the ground, but a group of people carrying a man by the arms came out, according to the report. They put the man on the ground near the entrance to the club.
A sergeant attempted to repair a gunshot wound to the man’s back as other officers secured the area, the report said. Paramedics arrived and transported the man to Trident Medical Center for further treatment, but he died the next morning.
Officers who viewed the club’s surveillance footage determined the man was shot dead on the dance floor, according to the report.
The incident report said Felder’s hometown was Goose Creek, while the coroner’s office said he lived in North Charleston. It was not clear what his main place of residence was.
