SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — A woman has died after a shooting involving a South Carolina sheriff’s deputy, but the sheriff says investigators don’t know whether she killed herself.
Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says a deputy tried to make a traffic stop around 7:45 p.m. Thursday and the woman drove away.
The sheriff said the woman fired at officers during the chase. An officer forced her off the road and she ran. Wright said the woman then first turned a gun on herself and then pointed it a deputy.
Wright says that as the deputy fired, she shot herself.
