YORK, S.C. (AP) -- The York County sheriff will release the dashboard camera video of a traffic stop where one of his deputies shot a 70-year-old man as he reached for his cane.

Sheriff Bruce Bryant is also expected Wednesday afternoon to talk about the Feb. 25 incident.

Deputy Terrence Knox stopped Bobby Canipe of Lincolnton for an expired license tag after dark on U.S. 321 north of Clover. Canipe got out of his truck, and the deputy shot at him several times as he reached in the back for his cane.

Canipe was hit once, but survived.

Knox was suspended with pay while the State Law Enforcement Division investigates. A prosecutor will decide if he faces charges.

The sheriff's office called the shooting appropriate the day after the traffic stop.
