YORK, SOUTH CAROLINA – A chilling incident unfolded in the early hours of Sunday morning in York County, which resulted in one person dead following a shooting involving an officer. The incident happened near the Alexander Love Highway, specifically between Lincoln Road and Highway 321, around 4 a.m., according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

However, the Sheriff’s Office has announced that no deputies were physically injured during the incident.

The victim of this tragic incident was identified by the York County Coroner’s Office as Charlie Baker, a 62-year-old resident of Clover, South Carolina. He was declared dead at the scene of the crime.

An autopsy and toxicology report will be conducted and are expected to be completed this week to help ascertain the details and circumstances surrounding Baker’s unfortunate demise.

Pending Investigations by SLED

While details surrounding the incident remain scarce, SLED has taken charge of the investigation to provide an impartial assessment of the events leading up to the shooting. The agency will examine evidence, gather witness testimonies, and analyze the actions taken by law enforcement officers involved.

Authorities have urged the community to remain patient as the investigation unfolds and to refrain from drawing conclusions until all facts have been thoroughly reviewed and analyzed. The goal is to ensure transparency and accountability throughout the investigative process.

In light of this tragic event, local officials have extended their condolences to the family and loved ones of Charlie Baker. They have emphasized the importance of understanding the circumstances surrounding the incident to prevent similar occurrences in the future and to uphold the principles of justice and accountability within the community.

As the investigation progresses, updates will be provided to the public to maintain transparency and address any concerns or inquiries from the community. The ultimate objective is to seek the truth and deliver justice for all parties involved in this unfortunate incident.
