Three Fountains, SC (Paul Kirby) – A man who was struggling with emotional issues eventually gave himself up after a standoff with law enforcement officers that lasted more than 3 hours Saturday. Officers were first called to his home for a domestic situation, but when they arrived, the man refused to come out of the home to speak with them. This happened on Arthurdale Drive off Hunters Mill Drive in the Three Fountains area of Lexington County.
The Hunters Mill subdivision is actually in the city of Cayce, even though it is surrounded by large portions of Lexington County. Officers from Cayce requested the assistance of SLED who responded in force with their SWAT team. Negotiators from Lexington County also were on the scene.
