MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - Berkeley County officials say a sheriff’s deputy wounded last month at a gas station in Moncks Corner is back in the hospital.

County spokesman Michael Mule told local media outlets that 54-year-old Lt. Will Rogers has been returned to the Medical University of South Carolina Hospital in Charleston from a rehabilitation center.

Rogers had been transferred to the hospital to the rehabilitation center earlier this month.

Mule would not say why Rogers was returned to the hospital.

Rogers was shot three times in the head and shoulder May 14 while he was talking with a customer.

The man investigators think shot Rogers, 32-year-old Jerome Thomas Caldwell of Mount Pleasant, was shot to death May 21 after a 10-hour standoff in Charleston.
