SWAT standoff ends in Greenville Co., two in custody

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

What started as a traffic stop on Daniels Avenue in Greenville Co. ended in a SWAT standoff Tuesday afternoon.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway with the Greenville Co. Sheriff's Office said a deputy pulled over a car with three people early Tuesday afternoon, and the confrontation resulted in a fight. The deputy had to hold one of the suspects down until backup arrived. That person was taken into custody.

Two of the other suspects got away from the scene of the traffic stop, and deputies learned those two men were holed up in a home on Agnew Drive.

Deputies and SWAT personnel surrounded the home. One of the suspects turned himself in, but the other man remained in the home. He was reportedly armed, according to Ridgeway. SWAT team members went into the home, but could not find the suspect.

The investigation is ongoing.
