WASHINGTON: Five US police officers were shot—one fatally—during an “active shooter” incident in South Carolina on Wednesday, US media reported.

CNN cited the coroner in Florence County, inland from the coastal resort of Myrtle Beach, as saying one officer had died from his wounds.     

CNN said the officer was among five—two city officers and three Florence County Sheriff’s deputies, who were wounded.

There were no immediate details on the condition of the other officers, after the latest shooting involving police in the United States.

The Florence County Emergency Management office had reported on Twitter at about 5:00 pm that an “active shooter” situation was under way in Florence.
