Suspect arrested, dog killed after standoff with Greenville Co. deputies

GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) - The Greenville County Sheriff's Office said a man was arrested following a standoff with deputies Tuesday afternoon.

According to a sheriff's office news release, deputies responded to a domestic dispute in the 800 block of Boiling Springs Road. 

When they arrived at the scene, they met with someone outside of the home and learned the suspect was inside the home.

Deputies say they called out to the suspect over a PA system, but he refused to come outside.

Deputies surrounded the house and the suspect -- identified as 26-year-old Gregory Tyquan Hill -- repeatedly opened the door and threatened to release a pitbull on the officers outside.

Hill then opened the door and released the dog. Deputies say the dog charged them and was fatally shot by an officer. 

Hill surrendered to deputies.

Neither he nor the deputies were reportedly injured in the incident.

Hill was charged with second-degree domestic violence and resisting arrest.

He remains in the Greenville County Detention Center under $20,600 bond, according to jail records.
