SLED: No body or dash cam video of Hollywood deputy-involved shooting

HOLLYWOOD, SC (WCSC) -

The shooting of a Hollywood homeowner by a Charleston County deputy responding to reports of a home invasion was not captured on a body camera or dash camera, according to a release from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

SLED is conducting an independent investigation into the shooting, which occurred late Thursday morning at a home in the 5900 block of Scott White Road. 

A release sent by SLED to media outlets Friday morning states there is no dash camera or body camera video of the incident. 

The law enforcement agency is conducting interviews with the responding officers and others, as well as gathering and analyzing forensic evidence. 

Investigators say a 20-year-old Hollywood man who called for help during a reported home invasion was shot in the neck by a deputy after refusing to drop a gun he was holding when confronted by officers. 

The victim was transported to MUSC with a life-threatening injury, according to officials. 

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office identified the deputy who fired the shots as Deputy Keith Tyner, a 12-year veteran at the Sheriff's Office. 

An incident report states two suspects were seen fleeing from the home as officers arrived. One of the suspects, identified as 22-year-old Thomas Zachary Brown, was captured. He has been charged with first-degree burglary and attempted murder. 

SLED's investigation is ongoing.
