Investigator Farrah Turner suffered fatal gunshot wounds when she and other investigators from the Florence County Sheriff's Office arrived at a home to interview a suspect as part of a sex offense investigation.
Sergeant Terrence Carraway, of the Florence Police Department, was shot and killed while responding to assist the wounded deputies at a house off of Vintage Drive.
Another subject in the house opened fire on the deputies as they approached the house, wounding all three. The man then positioned himself in a vantage point in a second-floor window, giving him a view of fire of several hundred yards. Sergeant Carraway, along with three other Florence police officers, responded to the scene and were attempting to rescue the three wounded deputies when the subject opened fire on them too, shooting all four.
The subject remained barricaded inside of his home for two hours before being taken into custody.
All of the wounded officers were transported to a local hospital where Sergeant Carraway succumbed to his wounds. Investigator Turner underwent nine surgeries and remained in critical condition until succumbing to her wounds on October 22nd, 2018.
