Four Cops Shot In South Carolina, Authorities Say





Domestic violence call leads to shooting.

By Benjamin Brown | Fox News - 38 Minutes Ago

Four South Carolina cops were shot early Tuesday morning while responding to a domestic violence call and a suspect was arrested, authorities said.

Deputies were responding to a domestic violence call late Monday evening, but the suspect had already fled the scene on foot by the time authorities arrived, a York County Sheriff's Office spokesman said at a press conference.

K9 units were sent to the scene to track down the suspect, at which point one of the K9 officers was shot around 1:07 a.m. He was transferred to a nearby hospital.

At around 3:30 a.m., additional shots were fired striking three more officers. They were rushed to a nearby hospital.

Three of the four officers wounded in the shooting were York County Sheriff's deputies. The fourth officer was from the York County Police Department. Their conditions were not immediately known.

Authorities arrested Christian Thomas McCall, 47, who also sustained gun wounds in the crossfire, according to the press conference.

"The sheriff's office can really use your prayers and your thoughts," York County Sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris said about the wounded officers.

Authorities were responding to a domestic call just after 10 p.m. Monday when the suspect fled the scene on foot, Faris said at a Tuesday news conference.

K9 units were sent to the scene when McCall fired his gun just after 1 a.m., striking one of the K-9 officers, officials said. Three York County Sheriff’s deputies were shot about 3:30 a.m.

The officers’ names were not released.
