A SC sheriff says three law enforcement officers were ambushed as they searched for a man suspected of beating his wife in the couple's home. It was unknown whether the dog was injured. A fourth officer had been shot earlier in the search. The suspect was injured at that time. He did not know the specific type of weapons. Authorities said it was reported that McCall was beating a woman when the 911 call came in. "We could really use your prayers", the York County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday near York when officers responded to a domestic dispute, according to reports. Those included two deputies and a York Police Department officer. During an afternoon press conference, a SLED official said that based on evidence, there's probable cause to seek warrants charging McCall with three counts of attempted murder. Officials said the rear of the helicopter was hit by gunfire but still able to fly.

Several law enforcement agencies then banded together to search for McCall. Three were York County sheriff's deputies.
