GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - Greenville County deputies say a shooting suspect died Sunday evening after wrecking their car on Sulphur Springs Drive.

According to GCSO: the two individuals were walking when the driver of a burgundy Hyundai pulled up behind them some time after 5 p.m. The driver then got out and shot several times at the two people, striking one of them at least once.

The suspect then sped off, but wrecked into a parked car. The Greenville County coroner identified the man as 42-year-old Jamie Teasley of Greenville. 

The coroner said Teasley was shot in the chest, which led him to crash his car. He was transported to the hospital for his injuries, but later passed away. 

At the moment, it is unclear who exactly shot Teasley.

The individual who was struck was transported to a local hospital and is expected to be okay. The other individual ran away from the scene and deputies are now trying to find him.

GCSO continues to investigate.
