Deputies said a man is in critical condition after turning a gun on himself when they tried to serve him a search warrant.

According to Ryan Flood with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office, deputies were responding to a residence on Chickasaw Drive, attempting to serve arrest warrants on a man for multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.
