    York County Sheriff's Office Spokesman Trent Faris discusses Tuesday's officer-involved shooting. JONATHAN MCFADDEN, THE HERALD







    CLOVER — The man shot during a traffic stop in Clover Tuesday night is a 70-year-old veteran of the military and was unarmed when approached by a York County sheriff’s deputy, according to his family.

    Bobby Canipe, who lives in Lincoln County, N.C, was on his way home from his annual weekend at the Daytona 500 Tuesday night, his niece said, when the deputy pulled him over at about 7:30 p.m. on U.S. 321. The vehicle had an expired license plate.
    The sheriff’s office said Deputy Terrence Knox, 24, pulled over the white pickup and then “shots were fired," Spokesman Trent Faris said.
    Faris said the driver of the pickup was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for treatment of a gunshot wound, and Knox was not injured.
    Two women who identified themselves as the man’s nieces – Millie Hastings and Tonya Stilwell – posted comments at heraldonline.com Wednesday morning.
    Their uncle was reaching to get his cane when he was shot in the chest, they said. He did not have a gun, they said.

    Sheriff's officials call the shooting an "unfortunate" incident.

    Knox thought the cane was a long-barreled weapon. He was forced to make "split second life or death decision," Faris said. Deputies on Wednesday maintain that Knox's actions were an "appropriate response."

    The gun was fired several times, but only hit Canipe once, Faris said.

    Knox has been placed on administrative leave. Canipe is expected to recover.

    When The Herald contacted Hastings Wednesday, she declined to provide more details than what was posted at heraldonline.com.

    Canipe, who his nieces say served 25 years in the military, remains at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
    Although he’s in stable condition, Angelia Canipe said, her uncle is in pain and was told doctors wouldn’t be able to remove the bullet from his chest because it would be too dangerous.
    Canipe's nieces said his family is upset and wants to know how this could have happened.
    “If anyone knows our Uncle Bob, I see no threat,†said Angelia Canipe. “I love my uncle and I just want the truth to be told.â€
    The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
    Check back for details.
    Previous reporting:
    The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the shooting of a motorist after a York County sheriff’s deputy made a traffic stop on U.S. 321 in Clover Tuesday night, sheriff’s officials said.
    The driver was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte for treatment of a gunshot wound, sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris said. He did not identify the victim and did not say where he had been shot or how many times.
    Deputy Terrence Knox, 24, who has worked for the sheriff’s office for three years, was not injured, Faris said.
    At about 7:30 p.m., Faris said, Knox pulled over a white pickup on U.S. 321 at Mosteller Street. Faris did not know the reason for the traffic stop.
    During the stop, Faris said, “shots were fired,†but he would not say whether the driver of the truck shot at the deputy or whether the deputy shot at the driver. He would not say there was an exchange of gunfire, how many times the driver was shot or how many gunshots were fired.
    The traffic stop happened near a mobile home community, but Faris said no one from that neighborhood was involved.
    Deputies blocked off the highway after the shooting. Traffic on U.S. 321 was being rerouted onto Old North Main Street as late as 10 p.m.

    Hey Nate, put yourself in the same situation. Wouldn't you be able to see what the driver is doing while standing at the window with a flashlight in your hand? Even if he pulled a handgun and your wasn't ready, just retreating a few steps into the drivers blind spot would make it very difficult for driver to hit you at the same time you draw your weapon?? At least that's what I was taught in the academy. :dontknow:

    SC Officer Shoots Man Reaching for Cane

    CLOVER, S.C. February 27, 2014 (AP)



    [​IMG]

    Authorities say a police officer in South Carolina shot a 70-year-old man reaching for a cane during a traffic stop because he thought the man was grabbing a rifle from the bed of his pickup truck. The man was expected to recover.
    York County Sheriff's office spokesman Trent Faris said Wednesday that deputy Terrence Knox has been placed on paid leave while the State Law Enforcement Division investigates the shooting. Faris said Knox stopped 70-year-old Bobby Canipe (kah-NYP') of Lincolnton, N.C., for an expired license plate Tuesday evening. He said Canipe got out of his pickup, and when he reached into the truck bed for his cane, Knox fired several shots, hitting Canipe once. Faris would not say on what part of the body Knox was struck.

    Fired "several" shots but only hit him once ? Both were out in the open ? I guess the threat of a 70 year old man in a pickup with expired plates really rattled the 24 year old boy scouts nerves.[​IMG]

    Sounds like a reasonable response. Old man should have just crawled on the ground instead of using a cane.

    That's a nice area, I camped at kings mountain for three days. A nice national military park and Crowder mountain state parkall within twenty miles of each other. I never saw one cop or even any park or forest rRangers while I was there. That's too bad.
