Three law enforcement officers reportedly shot in York County, say media outlets


Four South Carolina cops were hospitalized in the wake of being shot while reacting to an abusive behavior at home call late-Monday night, experts said. Around 10:00 p.m., shots were fired at the K-9 officer and he was taken to the hospital in a patrol vehicle for treatment, the York County Sheriff's office said. It's where three @YCSO_SC deputies were shot during the hunt for a suspect early this morning.

Tolson says McCall ran into the woods after officers arrived, and later shot York County Sgt. He was rushed to a hospital in a patrol vehicle.

As the search continued, three more officers were struck by gunfire. They included Sergeant Randy Clinton, Sergeant Buddy Brown, Detective Mike Doty, and Officer Kyle Cummings. The fourth officer was from the York County Police Department. State police say a suspect was also wounded. The officers' names and conditions weren't released.

"Immediately, with the assistance from surrounding agencies, we began actively looking for the suspect", a York County official said in an early Tuesday morning press conference.

Roger Gilfillan says McCall lived with his wife and three children in a rural area outside York.




According to WSOC McCall had been charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and assault in 1994, although McCall's father in law said that violence towards police was "uncharacteristic" for the 47-year-old.

After approaching the location, where, authorities said later, a man was allegedly assaulting a woman, the deputies ordered neighbors to stay inside and then traded gunshots with the suspect in a standoff that lasted several hours. According to the Observer, his condition has not been released.

Gilfillan said McCall frequently walked around the neighborhood but only spoke when someone spoke to him. "He just kept to himself", said Gilfillan.

News outlets reported a suspect was in custody.
