Road blocks have been set up and searches have been conducted on Grimball Road around Folly Road and Cuffey Lane. In a 4 p.m. press conference, Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon identified the injured deputy as Jeffrey Degrow, 33, a member of the sheriff's office since 2003. Cannon said Degrow was hit multiple times. One shot hit him above the eye. Cannon reiterated earlier hopes the deputy would recover. Cannon said the shooting occurred after Degrow chased several men around a trailer. Degrow pulled his taser but his assailants opened fire on the deputy. Degrow had been patrolling the Grimball Road area after an earlier report of burglary, said Cannon. Deputies detained several people for questioning, said Cannon, but no one has been arrested. In an earlier press conference, Cannon said deputies are interested in locating three men that were in a car nearby at the time of the shooting. Investigators have not determined whether the three men were involved in the shooting. In an impromptu interview outside MUSC, where Degrow is recovering, Cannon said the deputy was responding to hospital staff and alert. Nearby James Island Elementary, Clark Academy and James Island Middle School were all placed on administrative lockdown for the remainder of the day. In a release, school district spokeman Elliot Smalley said the measure was a precaution. Students in the schools were released at their regular times, although students that live in the neighborhoods around Grimball Road were kept on school grounds until their parents could pick them up, said Smalley in a later release. The State Law Enforcement Division, the FBI and the ATF have offered investigative assistance to the sheriff's office. Sheriff Cannon said the command post will continue to operate into tonight until there's a reason to leave the area. ©2010 WCSC. All rights reserved.
