WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has released the name of the injured man officials say tried to run over a deputy during a traffic stop in West Ashley Monday.

Chief Deputy John Clark says a Charleston County deputy was stopping 21-year-old Terrence Alexander Green in the 1300 block of Ashley River Road around 2 p.m. when Green reversed his vehicle, trying to hit the deputy.

The deputy then fired shots at the vehicle and two bullets struck Green in the elbow and the shoulder. Investigators say that Green is currently in ICU at MUSC.

Beth Goodman heard the commotion from inside the mortgage office where she works.

"I heard three what I thought was a sledgehammer and it ended up being shots fired," Goodman said."The deputy was standing on the sidewalk and he had just put his gun back into the holster."

Clark said Green then fled to the area of Juniper Street and White Oak Drive where his car was located. Investigators say K-9 units tracked the suspect behind a house where he was attempting to take clothes from a clothesline.

Green was taken to MUSC for treatment, where he remained on Tuesday. He is charged with attempted murder and reckless driving.

Green was out on youthful offender parole and probation, according to Micky Talley with the SC Department of Probation & Parole.
