Lonnie Wells

Officer Lonnie Wells was shot and killed and Corporal Marcus Stiles was critically wounded when they responded to a domestic disturbance call at approximately 4:00 pm.

A citizen called police with the license number of a pickup truck belonging to a couple that was arguing at a laundry off U.S. Highway 17A. The two officers arrived separately at the address on the truck's registration.

A subject at the scene opened fire, killing Officer Wells and critically wounding Corporal Stiles. Corporal Stiles was taken to a hospital where he succumbed to the gunshot wound to his head one day later.

The killer fled the scene in one of the patrol cars but was shot and killed a short time later by a deputy from the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office.

Officer Wells had served with the agency for 2 years.

It's been almost 10 years since this tragic event happen. In those ten years, I have continue to hold you near, and dear to my heart. You were not only a brother in arms, but, you were, and will forever be my true brother. I don't know if life will ever bring someone else in my life to replace the laughter, joy, and love you always displayed on a daily bases, but I do know that what you brought to the table will always have a very special place in my heart. The time spent together with you and your family, I will cherish for life. God gave me a true friend for life in you, and a brother who I will never forget. Hand in Hand, true blue forever.
