Man in SC elderly home shoots at residents, officers

Stanley Crosby, 65, faces seven counts of attempted murder, no one was injured

Associated Press

ORANGEBURG, S.C. — A South Carolina assisted living center resident is in jail after authorities say he fired a gun at the facility and then shot at arriving officers.

The State Law Enforcement Division has been asked to investigate the shootout Saturday in Orangeburg. The agency is involved because officers returned fire before capturing 65-year-old Stanley Crosby.

Crosby faces seven counts of attempted murder. At least 11 residents and employees of the home were evacuated along with residents of surrounding houses. No injuries were reported.

It's not known if Crosby is represented by an attorney and a telephone number listed for him was disconnected.
