Police Authorities Shot and Killed the Suspect

According to a published report in Yahoo News, police officers confronted Edwards who was holding a large butcher knife but he refused to follow the officer’s demands to drop it.

Additionally, officers also tried and attempted to detain Edwards using a Taser and K-9 unit but he was not able to be subdued. Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said that Edwards allegedly charged law enforcement officers.

Wright said, “We tried to deploy a taser on him, it didn’t work, we tried to deploy a dog, and it didn’t work. He started charging the officers and that’s when two of my deputies and a Landrum police officer shot.”
