A Spartanburg teen was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Tuesday after he admitted to firing multiple gunshots at sheriff’s deputies during a high-speed pursuit.

The initial incident took place in August of 2017.

Deputies say they were conducting a routine traffic stop around midnight when the driver refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated. At this point, they said, two teens in the vehicle began opening fire with a rifle out the back of the vehicle, striking the deputy’s vehicle multiple times.

Per the solicitor, “The pursuing deputy’s vehicle was struck twice in the front grill on the driver’s side. The damaged police car was forced to drop out of the pursuit.  Two other deputies were shot at when they joined the pursuit. Deputies chased the fleeing car to Highway 221 and Successful Way before the pursuit ended.”

She’Lah G. Norman, 17, pleaded guilty to three counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and discharging a firearm into a vehicle.

The investigation revealed that at least 11 shots were fired by Norman.

Investigators say he left his identification card at the scene as he fled. He was arrested two days later and received a 10-year prison sentence and five years of probation.

Antonio D. Moore, 20, was also charred in the incident. He is currently behind bars without bond, awaiting the disposition of multiple charges.
