2 children fatally stabbed by man in North Charleston home, police say – WYFF Greenville

A man has been charged with murder after two children were fatally stabbed in a South Carolina apartment.

North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor told news outlets that officers went to the apartment complex Monday afternoon when someone reported children were trapped inside with a man.

WCSC reports the original call to the home mentioned a man having mental issues.

The suspect fled when officers arrived. The coroner’s office said 8-year-old Avery Martin died at the scene, and his brother, 2-year-old Aiyden Martin, died at a local hospital.

Hours later, officers arrested 26-year-old Raashid Jaamal White, charging him with two counts of murder and possessing a knife during a violent crime. Authorities haven’t said whether White is related to the victims or whether he has an attorney.

Court officials said White waived his right to a bond hearing Tuesday.
