Dashcam Video Shows Police Responding to 9-1-1 Call, Show Up and Immediately Shoot the Victim

Hollywood, SC– Newly released dashcam footage captured a disturbing scene as Deputies Keith Tyner and Richard Powell of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the home of 26-year-old Bryant Heyward, who had just been the victim of a home invasion. Heyward had fended off the two intruders who were threatening his home and his life, only to be critically shot and paralyzed by those who he had desperately called for help.
On May 7, Heyward frantically called the police to report two men attempting to break into his home. After calling the police, he called his brother, who informed him that there was a gun in his bedroom. The suspects shot at Heyward twice, and he returned fire, nobody was harmed, but the intruders were successfully chased off.
“I didn’t want to shoot but I had to,” he said.
After arriving on the scene, the officers saw Heyward, who was still holding the weapon, and screamed “show me your hands, show me your hands.” Immediately following the demand, one of the officers began shooting at the innocent man- less than 2 seconds after initiating contact.
Heyward is still hospitalized, unable to speak or move his legs, his family told ABC that he is now paralyzed.
Heyward’s shooting was the 17th officer-involved shooting in South Carolina this year. Last year, there were 42 officer-involved shootings in the state.
In April, a woman successfully defended herself after her estranged husband broke into her mother’s home and attempted to kill her. When the police that her mother called arrived at the home, they shot her.
In February, a mother of two called 9-1-1 to report intruders and the police showed up and killed her.
In October, a black teen with white parents was assaulted by police in his own home because they believed he was a robber.
In September, a man called 9-1-1 to report vandals in his home. The police showed up and killed him.
