The incident report obtained by The Greenville News is partially obscured and redacted. It was pulled from an initial database by the agency's legal investigator, Greta McIntyre, who said she was unable to reformat the report to include a few words that are cut off from each line on the right side of the document that totals 70 lines of narrative.

The report has not yet been entered into the traditional records system, McIntyre said.

"This is so new and actively being worked that the documents aren’t in our records yet," McIntyre said in an email.

The report also details only the nature of the Sheriff's Office's initial 911 response. A separate report detailing the actual shooting is being compiled through the agency's Office of Professional Standards and has not yet been completed, McIntyre said.

Dashcam captured deputies' initial response to the scene but did not capture the actual shooting since it did not take place where deputies parked their vehicles, McIntyre said. She said the incident was recorded on deputies' body cameras.

Unlike dashcam footage and written reports, body-camera footage is not subject to disclosure through the Freedom of Information Act.

Lt. Ryan Flood, a spokesman for the Sheriff's Office, declined to answer specific questions about the shooting. He said information will be provided in a Critical Incident Community Briefing scheduled to be released on Aug. 25.

The briefings are the way that the Sheriff's Office releases to the public some of the details of events in which officers shoot individuals. At previous briefings, edited portions of video have been released.

McIntyre could not give a date for when a separate incident report specific to the shooting would be compiled and entered into their records system.

The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating the shooting. The Sheriff's Office is also conducting its own internal investigation.

The shooting is the Sheriff's Office's fourth case so far this year in which a person was shot at or shot by deputies. There have been at least 29 officer-involved shootings statewide so far this year, according to SLED.
