SOUTH CAROLINA (NBC News) – (7/31/19) Dramatic body camera video of the shooting of a man inside his South Carolina home last month has been released by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.
In the video posted on the Sheriff’s Office’s YouTube page, Captain Tim Brown, with the office of professional standards, explains that a silent medical panic alarm went off at a home in Simpsonville at 11:49 p.m. on June 14.
Brown said the alarm company and 911 dispatchers tried to contact the homeowner, but were unable to.
Just after midnight, a deputy rang the doorbell, but no one answered, Brown said.
He said as the deputy started to walk off the porch, he noticed movement from inside the home and went back to the front door to further investigate.
Brown said as the deputy returned to the front door he noticed a man, later identified as the homeowner, inside the home with a gun.
