The deputy involved was Master Deputy Robert Haslip.

Master Deputy Haslip has been with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office since 2011.

Master Deputy Haslip was involved in a vehicle pursuit around 11:00 p.m. with Scott from a domestic violence call out of North Charleston.

After Scott ran into a wooded area near Salters Lane, deputies say that at some point Scott shot at Master Deputy Haslip with a rifle.

Master Deputy Haslip would return fire, shooting Scott who surrendered to law enforcement and was taken into custody.

Deputies say Scott surrendered and was taken into custody and an AK type semi-automatic rifle was recovered in the wooded area.

Scott was taken to the hospital. There’s no update on his condition.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is investigating.
