An attempted robber was shot this past Monday morning on October 9 in Marlboro County, South Carolina. A story about the incident has been published on WPDE’s website.
The incident occurred at a convenience store just off Carolina Church Road in the Clio area of Marlboro County. Marlboro County Sherriff Charles Lemon said that the shooting happened at around 8:45 a.m.
The suspect, per Lemon, had “roughed up” the convenience store’s owner during the robbery. At some point, shots were fired. The suspect was hit by one of the bullets.
Sherriff Lemon stated that he’s not sure who fired the shots. Neighbors told WPDE reporters that several deputies along with emergency services passed their houses on the way to the scene of the incident.
Lemon said he would update the media and public as facts surfaced.
