GREENVILLE Co., SC (WSPA) – Deputies say the neighbor of a robbery victim shot and killed one of the suspects on Gethsemane Dr. in Greenville Co.
Sergeant Ryan Flood with the Greenville Co. Sheriff’s Office said deputies received the call just after 11 a.m. on Oct. 12 at Appaloosa and Gethsemane Drive in what locals call Mustang Village.
Deputies say the deceased, Jeffrey Eugene Bradley, 31, Shane William Standard, 25, and Tracie Lewis Mayfield, 32, went to a man’s home, held him at gunpoint and demanded money.
That man, 7 News has learned, is David Jordan.
“They forced their way in and then closed the door behind them,” he told 7 News on Friday.
Jordan said that while the three men were inside, they used a taser on him.
The pain made him fall onto his knees.
“You had another guy here with a stun gun.” said Jordan. “And he’s sticking me all along the legs, the side… I couldn’t get up.”
Neighbors reportedly heard the screams coming from across the street.
“We just heard yells from outside, help help help. They’re going in on his house, they have guns, there’s a lot of them,” Jessica Tyner told 7 News Friday night.
She said she was with her father and brother.
Her brother, she explained, grabbed a gun and fired off warning shots so the three men scattered.
One of the men, Jeffrey Eugene Bradley, ran into the road where her brother shot and killed him.
“These guys were dangerous. They had 3 cars at the end of the street waiting.” said Tyner.
Jordan told 7 News he believed the shooting was justified.
“You know, if the guy hadn’t seen them coming in with guns, I don’t think he would have ever known it. (…) “I really believe I’d be dead.”
Standard and Mayfield are charged with 1st Degree Burglary, Attempted Armed Robbery, Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime, Criminal Conspiracy, and Kidnapping.
Both are being held in the Greenville County Detention Center.
