Retired deputy shoots would-be burglar

RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – A retired Berkeley County deputy shot a would-be burglar at his home in Ridgeville Wednesday morning.

Berkeley County deputies responded to the scene off Poplar Hill Drive just after 7 a.m.

A witness who wanted to remain anonymous told News 2 he saw a man running to the retired deputy’s house then heard a single gunshot less than a minute later.

BCSO says since the incident involved a retired deputy, they turned the case over to State Law Enforcement Division.

SLED says the 16-year-old suspect was wounded in the leg and transported to MUSC with non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed yet, according to SLED.
