NAN to hold press conference on deputy-involved shooting

SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - The National Action Network is holding a press conference Friday along with the family of Shamir Palmer, who State Law Enforcement says was shot after pointing a gun at Dorchester County deputies and refusing to put it down.
