On Sunday, March 25, 2007, a routine call came into the Moncks Corner, S.C. Police Department on a domestic violence situation. But there is never anything routine about domestic violence and that day was no different. Before the afternoon was over two officers lay dead including Quincy native Michael Wells.
Wells and Officer Marcus Stiles were the only officers ever killed while on active duty in Moncks Corner. Lt. Michael Roach was the men's immediate supervisor and was devastated by the deaths.
