The Winnsboro public safety officer captured after investigators say he shot his estranged wife has been officially charged with attempted murder by the State Law Enforcement Division.

SLED says 41-year-old Michael Roseboro could face up to 30 years in prison for the incident. He was denied bond Thursday morning.

Deputies say Roseboro shot his wife while on duty, and then fled in a white Ford Crown Victoria.

Roseboro was arrested on Nov. 1 near Great Falls, but he shot himself in the chest while deputies attempted to take him into custody. 

He was taken to Palmetto Health Richland by ambulance. His injuries were not life-threatening.

Roseboro's wife was in stable condition at last check.
