Deputies: Homeowner, would-be robber get in shootout at home
GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man heading to work and a would-be robber fired at each other outside a South Carolina home.
Greenville County deputies said the homeowner told them a man in dark clothing with his face covered came out from behind bushes with a gun as he headed to his car Thursday morning in Greenville.
Sheriff’s spokesman Ryan Flood says the homeowner and the would-be robber fired at each other, but neither appeared to be wounded.
Flood said in a statement the suspect ran across state Highway 290 to a red pickup and drove away.
Flood says deputies are trying to find the suspect.
