A massive manhunt was underway at midnight Friday in northeast Richland County for two of four suspects who fled on foot after crashing their car at Killian Road and I-77.
The vehicle had been involved in a high speed chase involving gunfire at state troopers that started in Fairfield County, the Richland County Sheriff’s department said.
The vehicle was wanted in connection to an armed robbery in North Carolina, Sheriff Leon Lott told reporters on the scene.
The Richland County Sheriff’s department was notified by the South Carolina Highway Patrol of the ongoing pursuit just after 10 p.m. Friday.
Two of the four suspects were in custody shortly after midnight.
People were asked to stay away from the area of Killian Road and I-77 where the manhunt involving deputies, state troopers, K-9 units and a helicopter was underway.
