‘She started it, she finished it’: Deputy shot at by fugitive makes the arrest after weeklong manhunt

The suspect had left a bullet hole in Deputy Sydney Canipe’s windshield a week earlier, inches from her head

CHESTER COUNTY, S.C.  — A deputy who was nearly a victim herself was the one to cuff an accused killer and fugitive after a weeklong manhunt. A photo shared by WSOC-TV documented the moment that Deputy Sydney Canipe arrested Tyler Terry – a man suspected of four murders in two states. 

Last week, Terry shot at Canipe during a high-speed pursuit, leaving a bullet hole in the deputy’s windshield inches from her head. Despite that, Canipe continued the pursuit and avoided injury “by the grace of God,” said Sheriff Max Dorsey. 

Dorsey said it was only right for her to make the official arrest, according to the report. 

“She started. She finished it,” he said. 

Hundreds of officers were involved in the manhunt for Terry, reported WSOC-TV. They finally cornered him Tuesday after a week on the run
