Last week word came that North Charleston Police Sgt. Eddie Bullard shot himself while off Rivers Avenue, sustaining only minor injuries thanks to a protective vest. 

Police then investigated Bullard's vague description of "two black males dressed all in black" but began to see holes as they could find no corroborating stories or evidence — now Bullard has been fired.

The Post and Courier writes that Bullard is likely in a behavioral health facility. A state law enforcement investigation continues.
