Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: SC   USA   Mon. Feb. 18, 1985
Summary: Officer Robert Way was shot and killed by a person who was hostile towards police and sought revenge.

Officer Way and another officer responded to Rose's Hideaway Bar in response to an alarm. Upon their arrival, Officer Way went to the rear of the building where the suspect was waiting. The suspect took off running followed by Officer Way in foot pursuit. The suspect then ran around the corner of the building and stopped, turned around and fired one round striking Officer Way in the right side after he came around the building. The supect then turned and tried to run again as Officer Way returned fire striking the suspect two times in the lower back. The suspect then spun around and fired two more rounds at Officer Way, the first round missed and the second round struck Officer Way near the heart. Officer Way returned fire again striking the suspect four more times in the abdominal area. The suspect died at the scene within minutes and Officer Way died shortly thereafter at the hospital.

The suspect had returned to the bar that night to seek revenge on a North Charleston Police Department K-9 Team who had arrested him 10 days prior at the same location. The K-9 Dog (Cougar) was utilized to catch the fleeing suspect when he refused to stop on the commands of the K-9 Officer.

Officer Way had been employed with the North Charleston Police Department for one year and is survived by his wife and son.
