Greenville Deputy Sees Robbery, Shoots Bandit - News Story - WHNS Greenville
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Greenville County deputies said that a man involved in a robbery on Tuesday night was shot, after he pulled a gun on the deputy.
Investigators said that two men robbed the Corner Mart on Easley Bridge Road, and got away with cash.
Officials said that a deputy saw the two masked men running to a getaway car near the Corner Mart. They said the deputy chased the pair, and shot the driver of that car. They said the driver and passenger crashed their car into a tree on West Street.
Both men were arrested.
The wounded driver was taken to Greenville Memorial and treated for two gunshot wounds. His injuries were not life-threatening.
The State Law Enforcement Division was called in to investigate the robbery, chase and shooting.
The deputy was put on paid leave until the investigation is complete, which is standard procedure.

I could think of two ways this could have turned out better.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato

The locals should not yell, if he got an expenses-paid leave to a nice hotel with drinks and dinners.

Sounds to me like a good shoot.
The human cost of being responsible for the death of another human being, even BGs, is something that will bare on the soul and stays with you.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
