Four South Carolina police officers were shot early Tuesday morning after a routine call about a domestic incident resulted in police being ambushed during an area-wide manhunt.

Deputies said the suspect was gone when officers arrived.

McCall was eventually brought into custody around 4:00 a.m. EST Tuesday, but not before he shot and wounded four officers pursuing him - three York County deputies and one city police officer who was searching for him with a police dog. He was driven to the Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill in another officer's vehicle.

Lawmakers in York County and state representatives are "sickened and devastated" by the shootings for four law enforcement officers, calling it an "attack on our society". He said the suspect also was wounded.

McCall, a father of three children, was previously arrested in 1994 and was charged with assault, resisting arrest and assaulting an officer, South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry told WSOC. All three are members of the York County SWAT team, Farris said. Brown had received surgery which went well, officials said. "We could really use your prayers, and we could really use your thoughts right now for those officers".

McCall "sustained gunshot wounds and was taken to the hospital" where he is now in surgery. McCall also allegedly shot at a police helicopter.

No one answered the door at McCall's two-story brick home later Tuesday morning. However, SLED made a decision to wait on Doty's condition before proceeding.

Patrol cars from the York County Sheriff's Office were visibly parked outside CMC Main Tuesday afternoon.

Berry said a SLED helicopter and agents assisted in the search and investigation.

SLED agents and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police participated in the search.
