South Carolina Cop Shoots Elderly Man After Mistaking Cane For Shotgun

Via NYDailyNews

A South Carolina deputy wept with remorse after mistakenly shooting a 70-year-old man during a traffic stop because he thought the man’s cane was a shotgun, a grim new video shows.

York County Deputy Terrance Knox fired several shots at elderly motorist Bobby Canipe during a traffic stop on Feb. 25 after the old-timer got out of his truck to retrieve his cane from the flatbed.

In video released by York County Sheriff Bruce Bryant Wednesday, Knox yells “sir” and then “hey” several times before opening fire.

Canipe was hit once and is expected to recover.

He was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte after the shooting and has since been released.
In the video, Knox can be heard sobbing to another officer who arrived a few minutes after the shooting.

“He pulled the cane out, it looked like as shotgun, man,” the three-year vet says through tears.
As the other cop consoles him, Knox sobs, “I promise to God it looked like a shotgun.”
