Two charged in theft from vehicle
Victim reportedly shot at alleged thieves

Two men were arrested after they allegedly stole a GPS from a vehicle. The victim reportedly fired a shot at the two men as they ran away from his house.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, the victim, who lives on Brookfield Drive, was awakened by his dogs barking at about 3 a.m. last Wednesday morning. The victim told police that he heard a car door slam and grabbed his 9mm pistol before heading to his garage. As he exited the garage, the victim said he saw a man exiting one of his vehicles that was parked in the driveway.

According to the report, the victim said that he told the man to stop or he would shoot and the man started running. The victim said he told the man to stop again, but he continued running. The victim told police that he then fired a shot at the man, but was unsure if he had hit the man or not.

According to the report, police located a backpack that contained two GPS units and a cell phone. One of the GPS units belonged to the victim. A vehicle was located on an adjacent street that was registered to Curtis Harrison, 18, of 122 Faith Home Rd. There was no one near the vehicle and residents of the street did not recognize the vehicle.

According to the report, Harrison and another man, Brandon Sumerel, 20, of 125 Duke St. in Ninety Six, spoke to investigators last Friday and gave a full confession to breaking into several vehicles on July 3. Both have been charged with breaking into a motor vehicle and petit larceny.

In this situation the robber was running away and the victim fired at them. The only time that it should be legal for anyone to use deadly force, is if their life is threatened, or in a situation where a reasonable person would feel like there was enough danger to present a threat.

I strongly support our right to keep and bare arms but this person was not justified to shoot at a person running away. The shooter was in no way in fear of their life. This was an unlawful discharge of a firearm. A warning shot into the air I can see but not to take aim at the back of a person running from you.

First off you need more target practice or get a shotgun. you need to be more careful shooting in a neighborhood, might hit some innocent people. practice, practice, practice.
