Owners of a sandwich shop turned alleged shooting scene have been asked to leave their North Charleston establishment, but are speaking out about their recent arrest.
On Sunday, Rodney Armstrong and Emma Laughlin were charged with a misdemeanor after Charleston Police said they were illegally selling alcohol out of Ms. Sylvia's Sandwich Shop and Pool Tables on West Washington Street.
Police obtained a search warrant for the business about a man who went to the hospital saying he had been shot while holding the door open for a woman outside of the building.
The couple does not have a liquor license and said they did not apply for one because they did not want to operate a club. Instead, they have a permit that they believed allowed patrons to bring alcohol in, but said they were not selling it.
On Wednesday, property owner Sharon Whiting filed a civil complaint in magistrate court asking they be evicted from the building.
The couple has five days to respond. They can either comply, for request a hearing.
An arrest has not been made for the shooting.
