State agents are investigating an officer-involved shooting in Newberry early Wednesday.
Newberry police officers were on patrol just after midnight when they heard gunshots and responded to Drayton Street, where they encountered a man, according to Thom Berry, spokesman for the State Law Enforcement Division.
The suspect was identified as Glenn Boris, 41.
“The man reportedly shot at the officers, who then returned fire,” Berry said. “The man was injured and was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.”

Berry could not say how many officers were involved or how many fired their weapons. He did say there were at least two officers on the scene when the shooting happened.
Boris was taken to Palmetto Health Richland in Columbian with injuries that were not life-threatening, investigators said.
“We’re early on into the investigation,” Berry said. “We’ll need to do our work and determine what, if any, charges will be filed in connection with the incident.”
