SC man killed by ex-girlfriend's dad in shootout

Apr 25, 2011 12:44:00 PM - thestate.com
Authorities say a man who kidnapped his former girlfriend has been shot to death in a shootout that also involved her father and her roommate.

Saluda County Sheriff Jason Booth told WIS-TV that John Clark went to his ex-girlfriend's house Saturday night even though she had a restraining order against him and put a gun to her head.

Investigators say the woman's roommate began firing a gun, but it appears Clark shot her in the leg. The gunfire attracted the ex-girlfriend's father, who lives nearby. Booth says the man shot Clark several times after Clark couldn't get his gun to fire.

The State Law Enforcement Division is helping Booth's deputies sort out the shooting. The sheriff says the roommate is expected to recover.

No charges have been filed.
