WCBD-TV: News, Weather, and Sports for Charleston, SC

From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

 Just last week an alligator spotted in the ocean off folly beach, and tonight, a gator decided to do a little shopping.

Shoppers in North Charleston had a  reptile-sized surprise: an alligator in a parking lot at tanger outlets Tuesday.

Danielle McAdory, who shot this video, says the gator looked to be about six or seven feet long.  She spotted the alligator in the Hardee's parking lot and decided to snap pictures and get some video.

Officials corned and collected the gator and released it into the Goose Creek Reservoir.
