NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (AP) — A man who streamed himself on social media taking a woman hostage and firing on officers has been arrested after he was shot by law enforcement, authorities said.
Nathaniel Robert Meade, 42, was struck by several bullets during the six-hour ordeal that ended early Thursday and was treated and released from the hospital, investigators said.
The hostage and the officers were not hurt, authorities said.
Officers were first called after Meade came to a family member’s house in Aiken County with the woman he was holding hostage. Meade was gone by the time they arrived, but he then started broadcasting what he was doing on Facebook Live, Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Abdullah told news outlets.
