Man run­ning from of­fi­cer shot to death af­ter fight

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

Au­thor­i­ties say a 31-year-old South Carolina man was shot to death af­ter run­ning from a car and get­ting into a fight with a sher­iff’s deputy.

An­der­son County Sher­iff’s Lt. She­lia Cole said the man was a pas­sen­ger in a car the deputy was try­ing to pull over Tues­day af­ter­noon near Iva.

Cole says one shot was fired, but in­ves­ti­ga­tors don’t know if it came from the deputy’s weapon. She did not in­di­cate whether more than one gun was at the scene.

Cole says the deputy suf­fered a cut to the head and went to the hospi­tal but the in­jury shouldn’t be lifethreat­en­ing.

An­der­son County Coro­ner Greg Shore iden­ti­fied the man as Alexan­der Par­tain and says an au­topsy will be per­formed to­day.

Cole says the driver is in cus­tody. Au­thor­i­ties did not re­lease the deputy’s name.
