A 22-year-old man has been shot and killed by a Summerville police officer after officials say the man tried to hit the officer with a car.
Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet told The Post and Courier of Charleston that Nelson Gray Hyman III died early Sunday morning after being shot in the upper torso.
Nisbet says Hyman was shot after he tried to back over the officer with a car.
Police Capt. Jon Rogers says Hyman's car kept moving after the officer fired and crashed into truck on the same street.
Rogers would not identify the officer or say whether Hyman had a gun.
