Chief Investigator R.P. (Bob) Voight identified the man as David Smith. He is being held in the Aiken County Detention Center on a charge of assault and battery with intent to kill. Voight said Smith put down a semi automatic rifle in a wooded area near Jackson and surrendered to a number of law enforcement officers shortly after daylight Saturday. The surrender ended a wild episode of shooting that resulted in a spotlight on a deputy’s car being shot out, a shot being fired into the ground at the feet of a law enforcement officer and another shot fired through the door of a police cruiser. Voight said the shooting rampage started about 8 p.m. Friday when Deputy Bruce Wingate received a call from two women in Jackson. Thev told officers that Smith, the boyfriend of one of them, had broken into a mobile home and was threatening them. Voight said Wingate summoned backup support and Aiken Sheriff’s Department officers Lt; Bill Bledsoe, Cpl. David Quattlebaurh and Deputy Nathan Weigle went to the scene. The department also called for help from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and Aiken Department of Public Safety, which responded with special weapons teams and bloodhounds. Voight said Wingate was the first to Air Clemson? ROLLING OUT: Clemson quarterback Chris Morocco (8) rolls out as a Virginia defender closes in during action Saturday afternoon in Clemson.

When other officers arrived, Smith is alleged to have taken shots at the police vehicle and fired one round into the ground near LL Bledsoe. Voight said a number of shots were exchanged between the officers and Smith, who took refuge in woods to fire at the officers. Voight said no one was hit during the exchanges and officers waited out the man until daylight brought the surrender. U.S. Weighs Actions By The Associated Press WASHINGTON President Bush refuses to rule out military action to oust Panamanian Gen. Manuel Antonio Noriega, but the next U.S. moves are more likely to involve dollars than bullets. The new economic strictures under consideration to step up pressure on Noriega include the withholding of about $1.5 million in taxes paid monthly to his government on behalf of Panamanian employees of U.S. agencies, officials said. The officials, who asked not to be identified, said discussions about new sanctions against Panama began well before the failed coup attempt last Tuesday. According to the Treasury Department, sanctions imposed to date have deprived Panama of about $400 million. Other economic measures under consideration, the officials said, include limiting even further the payments U.S. (Please See U.S., Page SA) Charleston Power Could Be Restored By End Of Today By CARL LANGLEY Staff Writer A South Carolina Electric and Gas Co. spokesman said Friday that the utility expects to have power restored to almost every customer in the Charleston area by late Sunday. When Hurricane Hugo struck the coastal city two weeks ago, SCE&G’s power supply to all of its 132,000 customers in Charleston was severed. Since then, it has been a block-by-block and mile-by-mile effort to restore service. “We are a little ahead of what we expected, but we will have most everybody Local Volunteers Help.................Page    6A back on by late Sunday or early next week at the latest,” said Brian Duncan from SCE&G’s Columbia headquarters. Duncan said in order to get power restored to every customer the utility has had to perform some tasks that “we normally wouldn’t do, but nothing has been done that is unsafe. ” Duncan said in the months to follow the company expects to go back into a lot of areas and rework various lines in order to bring them up to standards. “Right now we are concentraing on try ing to get power back on, and once we get everyone back on we can take a closer look,” he remarked. “I am sure that the work will continue for months.” Duncan said the company “hasn’t given much thought” to what the final cost will be to repair, restore and ultimately upgrade the damaged system, but “it will be more than the $10-12 million figure that was given initially. “That was before we had a good idea, but at this point cost is secondary. The main thing is the repairs.” Cathy B. Novinger, an SCE&G senior vice president for government relations, produced a fact sheet that revealed the awesome impact the storm had on the system. Mrs. Novinger said the fact sheet omits financial costs because company accountants and estimators have been unable to tally up all the damage and what it will take to put everything back in place. Among the highlights of the Hurricane Fact Sheet provided by Mrs. Novinger and dated Oct. 5: ^ More than 300,000 of SCE&G’s 430,000 customers lost power due to the storm, with 132,000 of them in Charleston County.

The 81-year-old actress died Friday night at the American Hospital in Paris, a hospital spokesman confirmed Saturday. The two-time Oscar winning actress had been on her way home to West Hollywood, Calif., from a film festival in San Sebastian, Spain, where she had been honored for a lifetime of achievement and had won the hearts of the festival audience with her warmth, wit and honesty. In New York, her longtime attorney Howard Schiff said she died of cancer and that she had battled the disease since a mastec-    DAVIS tomy in 1983. During that same year, she also suffered a stroke and a broken hip. Her doctors knew the cancer had spread and was terminal, ne said, but decided to “let her go on going about her business.” Her business was film, and over the course of 59 years she starred in some of America’s most memorable movies. Among her more than 80 films were “Of Human Bondage,” “All About Eve” and “Dark Victory.” She was nominated for the Academy Award IO times and won the best actress award (Please See FRIENDS, Page 5A) {* Gamecocks Roll Staff Photo By Ginny Southworth GOING DOWN: (JSC wide receiver Eddie Miller (3) is brought down by East Carolina defenders during the Gamecocks 47-14 victory Saturday afternoon.
