Two shot in southern Oconee

An officer-involved shooting occurred this afternoon in Oconee County.  According to Sheriff Crenshaw, one of his deputies has been sent to a Greenville hospital in critical condition; a suspect has also been shot.  This occurred during a week of a joint law enforcement operation in Oconee, in which the Oconee Sheriff’s Office is receiving help from Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.  Crenshaw says the circumstances of what happened will be investigated by a third law enforcement agency–the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.
