Suspect in S.Carolina shooting disbarred lawyer

Heidler said that process took about 30 minutes, but "seemed like it was forever, but it was not". "They thought it was a random search warrant", Florence County Sheriff Kenney Boone said. Their conditions were not immediately known.

When the mayor realizes they aren't facing the camera, he has Carraway turn, prompting the sergeant to strike a amusing pose. They had served together three decades.

Carraway "was a giant of a man, but he was the proverbial gentle giant, and I loved him", the police chief said.

Boone said investigators from Richland County would help.

The officers were fired upon Wednesday afternoon.

At least 100 law enforcement officers responded to the scene, ABC Florence affiliate WPDE reported.

The South Carolina Supreme Court agreed to suspend the jail sentence, provided that Hopkins repay the remaining amount within 60 days.

Records and social media posts unearthed Thursday showed that Frederick Hopkins became serious about amateur target-shooting around the time he lost his law license in the 1980s for mishandling money.

"He had the ability to bring a sense of order and temperament to the most hard situations", Florence Mayor Stephen Wukela said.

The man investigators believe opened fire on a group of SC officers killing one of them and injuring six others, is not yet charged in connection with the crime.

A gunman had been holding children hostage and was involved in a two-hour stand-off before surrendering and being taken to hospital.

"These officers went there unknowing the firepower this suspect had", he said.

"Fire was being shot all over". "The way the suspect was positioned, his view of fire was several hundred yards, so he had an advantage". "The officers couldn't get to the ones who were down". He was charged with disorderly conduct in 2014, and "running at large" in 2015 and 2017, a charge related to failure to restrain animals, according to AP. Graham wrote in a Facebook post. The post also says he had been "shooting competitively since 1984 and lovin' it".

The violence stunned the area, where many people have been dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

"We are reaching out to all of our officers to provide not only crisis counseling, but a chief- and command-level briefing for them so we can ensure that they understand the events as they took place", Heidler said. One of those officers, 30-year veteran Terrence Carraway was killed.

Hopkins, who lived at the site of the shootings, is in custody and being hospitalized for a head injury, the station said.

Armed with a search warrant, sheriff's deputies were attempting to enter the home to investigate a 27-year-old who lives there for sexual assault, according to law enforcement sources. Three Florence County deputies and four Florence City Police officers were wounded.

Four of the officers shot were members of the Florence Police Department.

Boone credited his department's military equipment for enabling them to pull the wounded from the field of fire.

'Thanks to our MRAP, armored personnel carrier, we made sure all the officers that were shot were protected and brought for medical attention, ' he said. During the intense 2-hour firefight and standoff, several officers were shot, leaving them wounded and exposed.

Florence, a city of 37,000 in South Carolina's northeastern corner, sits at the convergence of Interstates 95 and 20 northwest of the state's well-known "Grand Strand" of beaches.
