Lexington County deputies attempting to serve felony warrants on a suspect opened fire on him when he rammed two patrol cars Wednesday afternoon.
The unnamed suspect was shot multiple times and is being treated at a local hospital, Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said. A deputy who was injured was also being treated.
The incident, which also involved U.S. marshals, unfolded around 3:30 p.m. on Cunningham Road near Boiling Springs Road in Lexington County.
Never miss a local story.
The suspect was wanted for armed robbery, attempted murder and conspiracy in connection to a Feb. 5 shooting on Carrie Lane in the Gaston community, Koon said.
The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
