Report ID’s Man Shot During Drug Raid

The name of a suspect shot during a multi-force drug raid in Ridgeway Oct. 19 has been released to The Voice, as well as some details of the incident, which remains under investigation by the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

According to an incident report from the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, Gregory Leon McDaniel, 30, of 2794 Mood Harrison Road, was shot twice by a Kershaw County deputy after investigators from the Kershaw, Chester and Fairfield county sheriff’s offices, as well as SLED, executed a search warrant on the home at approximately 7:30 a.m. Oct. 19. The raid was part of an investigation that, the report states, had led undercover officers to purchase cocaine from the residence.

Investigators entered the home and, while clearing one of the bedrooms, McDaniel attempted to disarm the Kershaw County deputy. The deputy then shot McDaniel twice, striking him both times. McDaniel was transported by EMS to Palmetto Richland Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. McDaniel remains hospitalized, as of press time, and has not yet been charged. An undetermined amount of an unidentified substance, believed to be cocaine, was recovered from the home and is being analyzed by SLED.

A simultaneous raid on a home at 2778 Mood Harrison Road led to the arrest of Chake Kahn Robertson, 36, on charges of possession with intent to distribute cocaine base (crack) and possession of marijuana. Investigators recovered 4 grams of cocaine and 3.5 grams of marijuana from the home, as well as an undetermined amount of cocaine rock, found in a plastic bag underneath the dresser in the master bedroom. Officers also recovered a cache of weapons and $918 in cash.

Investigators also arrested Antonio Wright, whose age and middle name were not available in the reports, at his home at 213 Robertson Drive in Ridgeway the same morning. Wright was arrested on a warrant for trafficking cocaine.

SLED said Monday that the investigation into the shooting remains active. The name of the Kershaw County deputy has not been released.
