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 had likely been the victim of a targeted shooting.

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

Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis says Porcher was shot several times as he walked to his vehicle in a parking lot at the restaurant and arcade. The North Charleston resident died at the scene.

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.
