Law Enforcement Officer Reported Dead, 4 Others Injured in South Carolina Shooting

5 officers shot in South Carolina’s Florence County

The man accused of killing a SC police officer and wounding six others has been identified, according to a report from the Associated Press. Three Florence County sheriff's deputies were shot, said Public Information Officer Major Michael M. Nunn, and four city officers were shot, said Florence Police Chief Allen Heidler. Fox also reports that the shooter is an elderly man.

The active situation is over, but city officials asked that residents stay away from the area.

Those injured in the shooting were believed to include three county deputies and two city officers. Both the sheriff and police chief cried as they spoke to reporters after the standoff.

A Twitter post from Florence County Emergency Management said that "Due to a high priority call in ..."

"This is simply devastating news from Florence", Gov. Henry McMaster said.

The shooting took place in the residential subdivision of Vintage Place in the western part of Florence. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Orioles starter Ryan Meisinger gave up five earned runs and recorded only one out against the Red Sox. Meanwhile, the Cubs blew a five-run lead against the Pirates before winning 7-6 in 10 innings.

President Donald Trump offered his thoughts and prayers while praising the law enforcement officers for their service to the community. Hopkins is now still at the hospital, and reportedly has a head injury and isn't able to speak to officers.

Kirby said the shooting occurred in the area of Hoffmeyer Road near the Vintage Place neighborhood.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., tweeted that his "prayers" are with the officers and their families.

Nunn said the suspect held off police for two hours - holding children hostage in his home - before eventually being taken into custody.

The TV station also cited Kirby as saying a 20-year-old man who was shot inside a house was still alive. Boone has not explained why he did not request that state police handle the case, as most SC law enforcement agencies do in an officer-involved shooting.

A source tells FOX 46 the name of the officer killed was Terrence Carraway.
