Manhunt Underway in Johnston

web posted August 29, 2014  8:25 pm

JOHNSTON A South Carolina Highway Patrolman making a traffic stop on Highway 191 near Johnston Friday afternoon put out a call for assistance and dispatchers were unable make contact with the trooper again after that. Another Trooper, Johnston Police and Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputies raced to the scene to aid the officer. While in route, the trooper was able to make contact stating he had one subject running from the scene with a gun towards the intersection with Highway 121.

Officers began converging in the area to try to seal off the suspect's escape rout. The only description given was a black male standing between 6' 2" and 6' 3" running with a black gun in his hand. Later reports indicated he may have a second weapon.

A second occupant of the car the trooper stopped was already in custody when the second decided to flee on foot. However, the trooper already had the man's information before he fled, but they have not released his identity at this time.

The search was still active at this writing and we will have more as information becomes available.
