Suspect Shot in Ridgeway Drug Raid

The S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) is investigating the shooting of a suspect during a Fairfield County drug raid, which occurred Friday morning in Ridgeway.

According to the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office, their narcotics division was conducting a joint drug operation with SLED and the Chester and Kershaw county sheriff’s offices in the 2700 block of Mood Harrison Road in Ridgeway at 7:30 a.m. During the execution of a search warrant, a deputy from Kershaw County was forced to discharge his weapon. The deputy was not injured, but a male subject in the home at the time was transported to Richland Memorial Hospital with unspecified injuries.

SLED did not respond to phone calls before press time.

Two subjects were arrested during the operation, the Sheriff’s Office said, with more arrests expected. Tony Wright and Chaka Kahn Robertson were arrested Friday morning during the raid.
