WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – A 52-year-old man is facing charges after authorities said he shot at a deputy during a domestic dispute.

Willie John Dansby Jr. was arrested and charged with first-degree assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature for a June 25 incident where he allegedly shot at a corporal with the Williamsburg County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies had initially responded to a reported domestic dispute off Hubcap Road in the Kingstree area.

At the scene, deputies said Dansby fired a weapon from the resident toward the door where a deputy was located. The deputy was able to seek cover until other law enforcement personnel arrived.

“An investigation into the incident revealed that the domestic dispute victim was located inside the residence when Dansby discharged a handgun at the victim,” officials said. “Dansby then followed the victim into another room of the residence while armed and threatened the victim’s life.”

Deputies said the victim, nor the deputy, was injured during the incident.

Dansby was taken to Williamsburg County Detention Center. The sheriff’s office requested help from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division to investigate the shooting since it involved law enforcement.
