SC deputy on leave after shooting 70-year-old NC man reaching for cane during traffic stop

Authorities say a police officer in South Carolina shot a 70-year-old man reaching for a cane during a traffic stop because he thought the man was grabbing a rifle from the bed of his pickup truck. The man was expected to recover.

York County Sheriff's office spokesman Trent Faris said Wednesday that deputy Terrence Knox has been placed on paid leave while the State Law Enforcement Division investigates the shooting. Faris said Knox stopped 70-year-old Bobby Canipe (kah-NYP') of Lincolnton, N.C., for an expired license plate Tuesday evening. He said Canipe got out of his pickup, and when he reached into the truck bed for his cane, Knox fired several shots, hitting Canipe once. Faris would not say on what part of the body Knox was struck.
