A bank robbery suspect accused of shooting a Charleston County sheriff's deputy in February in West Ashley has been indicted.
A law enforcement task force with warrants for Terrell Mallard, 30, on Feb. 26 forced its way into his home on Tomoka Drive, where Master Deputy Alan I. Ali was shot in the ankle. Authorities accused Mallard of firing the shot that wounded the deputy. Agents returned fire, and Mallard was shot. He was treated and released from a local hospital.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Columbia said Wednesday that a federal grand jury has indicted Mallard on charges of attempted murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm, resisting law enforcement officers and using a firearm during a crime of violence. He faces the possibility of life imprisonment and a fine of $2 million.
