TAYLORS, S.C. (AP) - A man who was shot in the neck by a sheriff’s deputy in South Carolina has died.

Coroner Parks Evans tells local media that 53-year-old Reginald Darnell Dogan died Wednesday of the neck wound he received on May 2.

Greenville County Sheriff Steve Loftis says his deputies were called to respond to a gun-waving man in the Greenville suburb of Taylors. He says a deputy ordered Dogan to drop the gun but he pointed it at officers instead; one officer held his fire to avoid hitting bystanders, while another with a clear shot hit Dogan in the neck.

Loftis says his department’s review found the officers followed proper procedures. The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.

Dogan was black and the deputies are white.
