The area around Old Limestone Road was reopened to traffic at about 12:30 p.m. after being shut down for most of the morning.

State Law Enforcement Division agents are investigating.

Gast said an autopsy and toxicology results are pending.

The Old Limestone Road shooting is the third time since October officials in York County departments have been connected with officer-involved shootings.

A Rock Hill man was injured in an officer-involved shooting on Thanksgiving Day after neighbors reported the man standing on his porch with a gun.

Rock Hill Police responded to that incident, and SWAT team was called in. The resident, Jacob Dean Patterson, 30, was transported to Carolinas Medical Center. Charges are pending.

York County Sheriff’s deputies and Clover Police officers fired shots at a man in a Oct. 19 police chase spanning across state lines. The man was shot and killed in Kings Mountain, N.C., where the chase ended.
