LANDRUM, S.C. – A South Carolina man is recovering after sheriff's deputies say he kicked in a Landrum home's door, assaulted his wife, and then was shot when he tried to get his hands on the home's owner.
The Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office says Dakota Hester is in critical condition Saturday after being shot multiple times after a Friday night rampage.
Deputies say Hester was shot by Jonathan Wofford after he called 911 to report someone was trying to break into his home, retreated to his bedroom, locked the door, and saw Hester kick in that door too.
Deputies say before trying to attack Wofford, the raging Hester grabbed his wife Amy Hester around the neck and pushed her against a wall. Amy Hester was inside the home when Dakota Hester burst in.
