BLUFFTON, S.C. (AP) - The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office says a shooting this week at the Sun City Hilton Head senior residential community was a case of self-defense and no charges are being filed.

Authorities tell area media outlets that 45-year-old William Bryant was shot several times Monday morning.

Deputies say that at the time Bryant was aggressively attempting to enter the bedroom of his 91-year-old grandmother at his mother’s home. Deputies say he was shot by his mother as he tried to get into the room.

Investigators say that Bryant, who was 6-foot-5 and weighed 230 pounds, had threatened both his mother and grandmother in the past.
