Five police officers shot in SC

One police officer was killed and six other members of law enforcement were wounded by a gunman on Wednesday as officers in Florence, South Carolina served a search warrant at a residence.

The deceased officer was an experienced member of the Florence Police Department, Chief Allen Heidler said. Two other officers from Florence Police and four deputies from the Florence County Sheriff's Office were wounded by the gunman.

Florence County Sheriff Kenny Boone said that the suspect barricaded himself for two hours, with children inside his residence. Shortly before 6 p.m., he surrendered to police.

At 6 p.m., the Florence County Emergency Management said, "The active shooting situation is over and the suspect is in custody. We are asking everyone to stay away from Vintage Place as there is still an active crime investigation in progress."
