Four people are sitting behind bars tonight after a rash of robberies across two counties. It was the last stop in Aiken South Carolina for Bradley Parrish, David Dempsey, Breanna Dudley, and Autumn Cooper where one shot ended it all.
“All of a sudden he goes give me all your money, so I started pulling out bills and everything,” said Pat Coats, who was robbed at gun point.
Coats was filled with fear when she saw the gun.
“On the way out I hear a pop, and the gun had gone off, and that tells me that’s real. He screams then starts limping, but there was a car outside and he got away pretty quickly. Karma got him by that gun going off,” said Coats.
Although Dempsey was the only one to get shot, it was his failed attempt that ended up shooting them all in the foot, at least metaphorically. Deputies were responding to the robbery when the four flagged them down because Dempsey needed medical attention. Deputies put two and two together, and now the 4 of them are in jail.
