One suspect is dead following an officer-involved shooting near East Boundary Road and Faraway Drive, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Department spokesperson Curtis Wilson said deputies were behind a suspicious vehicle at Woodfield Park near Decker Boulevard when a short chase ensued.

Wilson says a short time later, the suspect exited the vehicle and fired multiple shots at the pursuing deputy.

That's when the deputy returned fire and fatally wounded the suspect, according to Wilson.
