Aiken deputies: Homeowner shot man during robbery

Deputies say a Graniteville homeowner responded to the attempted theft of an all-terrain vehicle with gunshots.

Officials say Leonel T. Sanchez, 26, shot Jack H. Cooper, 18, as Cooper was trying to steal the ATV from the Bettis Academy Road home on Saturday morning.

At 1:15am, a motorist found Cooper lying on Bettis Academy Road, and gave him a ride to a convenience store, where deputies met Cooper.

Aiken County Emergency Medical Services then transported Cooper to the Medical College of Georgia, in Augusta.

He will be charged with attempted grand larceny and possession of a firearm under 21.

An investigation also led to the arrest of Clarence W. Oglesby IV, 22. He’s charged with attempted grand larceny. A 16-year-old juvenile was released to relatives.

The homeowner won’t be charged.
