YORK COUNTY, S.C. — Kaylan Whiteside is behind bars as her grandfather, who was shot, recovers at Carolinas Medical Center.
The York County Sheriff’s Office would not tell Channel 9 exactly how Whiteside was involved in the crime, but she is facing an attempted murder charge.
War veteran in critical condition after being shot by robbers
A community is shocked by a crime that targeted an elderly veteran, and police believe a family member may have targeted him.
“I heard about it but I didn’t realize that it was his grandkid that got arrested,” Cara Berenyi, who lives in the area, said. “That’s pretty crazy.”

This is possibly the worst case scenario. The violation of the family bond and trust has to be unthinkable for most of us. I am willing to bet that there were enough hints that the granddaughter was not the most honest people in the world, but still I understand how somebody from that generation would be caught in the denial that blood would come after him.
Sad state of affairs. Time to revise the family bonds.
