FLORENCE, S.C. — SLED agents have been called in to investigate a fatal shooting involving a Florence County sheriff’s deputy at Southern Pines Mobile Home Park.
Deputies on Wednesday had the South Oliver Drive blocked at its first intersection with South Dingle Drive and were allowing residents to depart the area but nobody to enter.
One Florence County EMS ambulance left the area while another arrived. Neither appeared to be responding to an emergency.
Florence County Sheriff T.J. Joye confirmed that one of his deputies was involved in the shooting.
Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken confirmed that one person died in the shooting.
Joye said the investigation has been turned over to the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division, which is standard in shootings involving officers.
