Police Sgt. Eddie Bullard allegedly shot himself, filed false report (Post and Courier)
North Charleston Police Sgt. Eddie Bullard shot himself and then made up a story for investigators that he was wounded by his own gun during a struggle with a shadowy suspect, Police Chief Jon Zumalt said Friday.

In a hastily called late afternoon City Hall press conference, Zumalt said that Bullard’s account of being shot with his gun while defending himself outside a Rivers Avenue business upset the police and the community.

“It gets everybody on edge,” he said. “I’m sorry to the community.”
