Nichols was badly injured after being shot by a deputy. Nichols was taken to a hospital where he later died. No deputies were injured in the incident.
Chaney says a sheriff’s office unit was executing a warrant for sexual battery of a juvenile and the suspect came to the door with a weapon. At that point, shots were fired, he says.
Chaney says it’s not clear who fired the first shot at this point. Chaney said the two officers involved in the shooting are now on administrative leave.
