Two deputies from the Lexington County Sheriff's Department have been injured after a shooting Sunday afternoon, according to LCSD officials. The incident occurred shortly before 4:45 p.m.

The deputies exchanged gunfire with a man in the Woodland Village apartments on Bush River Road.

The officers were responding to a domestic call at a Cottonwood Lane unit.

According to Sheriff Jay Koon, when the deputies arrived, the suspect was holding a child and had a handgun. Koon also said the man was out on bond in a murder case from 2017 in Richland County. 

All three individuals were transported to a hospital with gunshot wounds. Koon said both deputies are expected to make a full recovery. The condition of the suspect is not known. 

SLED is investigating the shooting, per policy. Any additional updates will be provided when received.

I hope that the child and the deputies are okay, and that they catch the man who did this. And I hope he is okay, but has some "time" to reassess what he was doing and how he endangered a child's life. I hope that he is rehabilitated so that he can have a better life and not hurt anyone else.


What happened to the child?
