YORK, S.C. — Authorities say a South Carolina sheriff’s deputy fatally shot a man after responding to a domestic disturbance call.

York County sheriff’s spokesman Trent Faris said in a news release that the shooting happened about 4 a.m. Friday northeast of York. Authorities told news outlets the officer wasn’t hurt.

State Law Enforcement Division spokeswoman Kathryn Richardson said the victim was white, as is the officer.

The York County Coroner’s Office identified the shooting victim as 35-year-old Trent Fondren. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and the statement from the coroner’s office said autopsy and toxicology results are pending.

York is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southwest of Charlotte, North Carolina.
