SLED: No dash cam, body cam videos from Hollywood shooting

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCIV) -- State Law Enforcement Division officials say there are no body cam or dash cam videos of the deputy-involved shooting in Hollywood on Thursday.

In the incident, deputies were responding to a reported home invasion in which shots were fired. When they arrived, they were met by a young black man in the doorway to the home who had a gun.

The man was reportedly told to drop the weapon, but did not, so one of the deputies fired his weapon. The man was hit in the neck and listed as Category 2 by EMS when he was taken to Medical University Hospital.

Charleston County Sheriff's deputies said Friday the man was still in the hospital.

On Friday, officials released the identities{}of the two deputies as Deputy Richard Powell and Deputy Keith Tyner. Powell has been with the department since 1995. Tyner was hired in July of 2006.

SLED officials said the shooting investigation would be put together and handed over to prosecutors who will decide whether criminal charges will be filed.

Members of the sheriff's office and community leaders will meet at 2 p.m. Friday to discuss the shooting.

Also at 2 p.m., one of the suspects accused in the home invasion is expected to go through bond court. Deputies charged Thomas Zachary Brown, 22, of Hollywood with first-degree burglary and attempted murder. He is being held at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry said agents were sent to the home to investigate the shooting, which is routine in officer-involved shootings. They were seen at the home a couple hours later talking to investigators and residents.

According to SLED, this is the 17th officer-involved shooting in South Carolina in 2015. In 2014, there were 42 officer-involved shootings, officials said. This is also the second officer-involved shooting of the week in the Lowcountry.

On Wednesday, a Colleton County deputy shot a bank robbery suspect in the hand during a chase in which the suspect reportedly tried to run over the deputy in a car.
