DARLINGTON, S.C. — SLED has been called in to investigate a Thursday morning shooting near the Trexler Street area of Darlington that involved a sheriff's deputy.

"Deputies were in the process of serving an arrest warrant when the confrontation transpired resulting in the male suspect being shot by law enforcement," according to a media advisory from the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

"A second person was also shot by law enforcement during the confrontation. Both were transported to a nearby hospital. The extent of their injuries are not available at this time. One deputy was also injured in a vehicle collision associated with the incident. No other injuries were reported," according to the SLED advisory.

The Darlington County Sheriff's Office called in SLED to investigate the shooting, which is standard practice.

This is the 35th officer-involved shooting in South Carolina this year, the first involving a Darlington County sheriff's deputy. There were 45 such incidents last year, two of which involved Darlington County sheriff's deputies, according to SLED.
