STUNNING ADMISSION By Black Man Shot By White Cop In South Carolina

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — As a black South Carolina man was being rushed to the hospital after he was shot by a white sheriff’s deputy, he told an investigator in a recorded interview that he should have dropped the gun he had grabbed earlier to protect himself from intruders.

“I saw officers and I should have put the gun down,” Bryant Heyward told a Charleston County Sheriff’s investigator during an interview in the ambulance following the Thursday incident.

“I didn’t. They thought I was the crook and shot,” Heyward, 26, said. The recorded interview was played Friday for local community leaders and news reporters.
