A South Carolina man was shot and killed Tuesday night after a state trooper tried to take him into custody, authorities said.
The man killed was identified as Brian Dustin Shumway, 36, according to the Pickens County Coroner's Office. An autopsy is scheduled to gather more information about how he was killed.
The trooper attempted to stop on a two-lane highway near Marietta, investigators said. Shumway died about 3 miles (5 kilometers) from his home, which was also in Marietta.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol said the trooper was not injured in the shooting, but did not release other information, including what led to the traffic stop or how long the trooper and Shumway shot at each other.
