Police: Man killed outside Chuck E. Cheese’s likely targeted

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was killed while walking with his children outside a Chuck E. Cheese’s in South Carolina was likely the victim of a targeted shooting.

News outlets report Charleston County Deputy Coroner Michelle Gonzalez has identified the victim as 32-year-old Joshua Porcher. No one else was injured in the shooting Saturday night and authorities have not announced any arrests.

Lieutenant Command Duty Officer Patrick McLaughlin says Porcher was walking from the restaurant and arcade with his children when he was shot several times. The North Charleston resident died at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

Investigators are working to determine the relationship between Porcher and the shooter.

Christelle Dupont, a spokeswoman for CEC Entertainment, which owns Chuck E. Cheese’s, says it’s cooperating with investigators.
