Settlement reached in Eutawville wrongful death lawsuit

A settlement has been reached in the wrongful death lawsuit over a 2011 shooting involving Eutawville’s ex-police chief Richard Combs and 54-year-old Bernard Bailey. Bailey’s family filed over a year and a half ago against Combs and the town of Eutawville and will receive $400,000 from the settlement.

According to records from police investigators, Combs fired three shots at Bailey as Bailey was trying to leave the premises of the town hall parking lot in his vehicle on May 2, 2011.

Combs was put on administrative leave during the duration of the incident’s investigation and was later terminated from his post the same year.
