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. Officer 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.
All of the wounded officers were transported to a local hospital where Officer Carraway succumbed to his wounds.
The subject remained barricaded inside of his home for two hours before being taken into custody.
Officer Carraway had served with the Florence Police Department for 30 years.
