Myrtle Beach will investigate state, Horry police after ‘suicidal’ man is killed

MYRTLE BEACH ONLINE, 4 AUGUST 2017, FEAT. PROF. SETH STOUGHTON:

A web of yellow crime scene tape was spun around a Deerfield Plantation home where police say a “suicidal” man was killed by a law enforcement officer early Friday.

Myrtle Beach police will investigate the death, because the State Law Enforcement Division helped respond to the call. SLED typically investigates officer-involved shootings by other agencies.

The identity of the man, who later died in the hospital, had not been released by local authorities by Friday afternoon.
