ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -
One person is dead following an officer-involved shooting in Anderson, according to police.
Investigators said they were called to Kings Road about 2:45 a.m. Thursday for a domestic-related incident between a husband and wife.
Coroner Greg Shore said three officers went inside the home, and that's when a man pointed what appeared to be a gun at officers. At least one officer fired his gun, and the suspect died on the scene, Shore said.
Investigators said the man's wife, who was inside the home, was taken to the hospital due to injuries from a physical fight with the suspect. Shore said she was doing OK.
Shore said the man officers shot was 47-year-old Paul Leatherwood. Sgt. David Creamer said officers have been called to the same house six times in the past six months for domestic-related issues.
The State Law Enforcement Division is headed to the scene to investigate, which is standard protocol for officer-involved shootings in South Carolina.
