Greenville County deputies said a suspected burglar is dead after being shot by a resident who discovered the intruder Friday morning.

Deputies said they were called to an apartment complex on Easterlin Way just after 8 a.m. after a person living there came home and found the suspect in the home.

“The resident fired at least one round and retreated outside to call and await law enforcement response,” Investigator Sean Zukowsky said in an email.

Deputies arrived and Zukowsky said they found the suspect dead in the master bedroom closet.

The suspect had been stalking her and had made threats against her in the past. 

The victim works at a night club and had previous encounters with the suspect while working.
