Seven US police shot in deadly stand-off

Police Shooting South Carolina

Two sheriff's deputies are in critical condition, Chief Deputy Glenn Kirby said, and the third is in stable condition.

According to CBS News, police were attempting to serve a warrant involving the suspect's 27-year-old son for allegedly sexually assaulting a foster child in the home. Four other officers who were shot remained hospitalized Friday.

The standoff lasted for two hours, and CBN reports that it was so unsafe that officers had to use bullet-proof vehicles to rescue the wounded.

"This has been a horrendous evening", Florence Police Chief Allen Heidler said. Three Florence County deputies and four Florence city police officers were shot by the suspect, Hopkins. Meanwhile, as this news outlet exclusively reported yesterday, numerous assets from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have also been deployed - including a team of forensic analysts who helped investigate the 2016 Dallas police shooting and the 2017 mass shooting on the Las Vegas strip.

That's when officers from the police department got involved.

City of Florence spokesman John Wukela identified the fallen officer to The Associated Press as Terrence Carraway of Darlington.

Frederick Hopkins' wife - local family law attorney Cheryl Turner-Hopkins - argued SCDSS did not need to take the children from the home because the "threat had been removed", but the court clearly wasn't buying that argument.

Carraway recently celebrated 30 years of service with the Florence Police department, was described as the "bravest police officer" by his fellow officers.

'The Walking Dead' Actor Scott Wilson Dead at 76
"The first time I met Scott Wilson , he gave me a big hug and said that this thing I had become a part of. was a family". The scene is still recalled and references amongst Walking Dead fans for it's tragic nature and brutality.


He said Carraway, his youth football coach in the late 1990s, was a down-to-earth community leader with whom young people felt comfortable discussing their problems. But the Florence County Emergency Management Department said on Twitter that an "active shooting situation" reported in the area was "over and the suspect is in custody". Several of his Facebook posts in recent years were about guns, including celebrating his 70th birthday by repeatedly firing his M14 rifle "set up exactly like the one I used in Vietnam". NBC News reports that the wounded man was the suspect's son. In 2014, Hopkins was charged with public disorderly conduct, according to court records. Hopkins also was a lawyer, admitted to the SC bar in 1980, but was later disbarred. More than a month and a half later, Hopkins had paid only $4,600, spurring a contempt of court finding and a June 1984 order that he be jailed for six months or until he complied with the order. The sheriff says he should be released from the hospital Friday after suffering a head injury. Hopkins reportedly fell at the scene. They also did not name him or the wounded officers, nor did they give their conditions.

"Yesterday afternoon, Florence County Deputies arrived at a residence in Florence, South Carolina to serve a search warrant".

Law enforcement indicated that children were in the home at the time that Hopkins opened fire and that those children were held hostage for a time. When they got out of their auto, Frederick Hopkins shot them, officials say.
