Anderson Co. deputies, SLED respond to reported shooting


A DEPUTY INVOLVED SHOOTING IS UNDER INVESTIGATION THIS MORNING IN ANDERSON COUNTY. THE SHERIFF’S OFFICE SAYS A WOMAN RAN OUT OF HER HOME AFTER FINDING A MAN INSIDE. AUTHORITIES SAY THAT SUSPECT FLASHED A GUN AT HER BEFORE TRYING TO GET INTO HIS VAN. THE SHERIFF SAYS A DEPUTY CAME ACROSS THE MAN IN THE VAN… AND ORDERED HIM TO DROP HIS WEAPON SEVERAL TIMES. ONE NEIGHBOR DESCRIBED WHAT HE SAW. “I saw a man try to get back aggressively and then the cop pulled out his gun and fired a couple rounds into him, and then he obviously checked to see if he was okay. He called backup and backup arrived and they put him in an ambulance and sent him off.” THE SHERIFF SAYS THE SUSPECT… WHO WAS SHOT… WAS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SUBSTANCE AND APOLOGIZED ON THE WAY TO THE HOSPITAL. THAT SUSPECT IS EXPECTED TO SURVIVE.
