  • Charleston County, SC Deputy Sheriff Joe Matuskovic

    Originally posted by SCDEPUTY View Post
    Deputy Sheriff Joe Matuskovic was shot and killed as he and several other deputies responded to a disturbance call at an apartment complex at the intersection of Ashley River Road and Carriage Lane.

    Two deputies working an overtime assignment at the complex had requested assistance from additional deputies to help deal with the subject who had been pounding on apartment doors and vehicles in the parking lot. The man then went inside his apartment. As the deputies attempted to make contact with the man he opened fire through the apartment door, striking Deputy Matuskovic and another deputy.

    Both deputies were pulled to safety and transported to the Medical University of South Carolina, where Deputy Matuskovic succumbed to his wounds.

    The Charleston Police Department SWAT team made entry into the home several hours later and found the subject dead of a gunshot wound.

    Mr. Larry Britton, an employee with the Charleston County’s Technology Services and Radio Operations, suffered a fatal heart attack while assisting the Charleston County Sheriff's Office with joint communications during the event.

    Deputy Matuskovic had served in law enforcement for 17 years.

    Rest in Peace, Brother.

    And May God Bless the Radio Comms Operator as well.
    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

    I Am the Sheepdog.

    that we are all that stands between
    the monsters and the weak." - Michael Marks
