CAMPOBELLO, SC (WSPA) – A suspect was shot and killed after a struggle with deputies following an armed robbery at the Dollar General on Highway 11, Friday morning.
The suspect has been identified by the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office as Douglas Marrickus Rainey, 32 from Anderson.
According to the Greenville County Sheriff’s Department, deputies chased Rainey on foot before they lost him.
The suspect was spotted by a resident on Links Drive just before 1:00pm and Spartanburg and Greenville county deputies searched the area.
A K-9 handler and K-9 saw Rainey running into the woods and when they caught up to him he began to fight the deputy and his K-9, according to investigators.
