A bond hearing is set for Monday for a man shot in the leg by a Richland County Sheriff’s deputy.
Antonio Davis Jr., 20, is being held in the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center on multiple charges, including resisting arrest with a deadly weapon and drug possession.
Davis was shot Thursday by Deputy Sarah Giron, after she and other witnesses said he pointed a gun at her during a chase.
Davis was the passenger in a car driven by his father on Shakespeare Road when Giron pulled them over. The young man allegedly opened the door and ran.
Giron twice chased down Davis but could not subdue him. A witness assisted Giron in a scuffle with the suspect and tried to help her catch him.
When the suspect allegedly pulled a gun, according to Sheriff’s Department reports, Giron fired several shots from her pistol. Davis was treated at a hospital for his wound.
Davis also has been charged with two counts of pointing a weapon at another person and possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent felony.
Giron was not injured in the incident and will return to duty, the Sheriff’s Department reported Friday.
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
