Deputies investigating death near Crooked Creek Park in Chapin area

Chapin, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a death that happened mid-day Monday in the 1100 block of Old Lexington Highway not far from Crooked Creek park near Chapin. The call, which first responders were dispatched to, was first being called a self-inflicted gunshot wound. It brought deputies and first responders from across the northern region and several of the Chapin area fire stations.

Deputies arrived on scene and found a woman locked in a vehicle on scene. Only after talking with her some time were they able to get her to come out. During this period, Old Lexington Highway was closed to through traffic.

The Lexington County Coroner’s Office responded to the scene from the Lexington area. They, along with investigators from the sheriff’s department, are looking into a death that apparently occurred on the scene.

The county’s first responders quickly left the area, but not before several high-ranking officials with the fire service, including Lexington County’s Fire Chief Mark Davis, responded to the scene. When the ladder truck and its crew from the Chapin station left the scene, that truck was taken out of service for reasons unknown.

We asked for more information shortly after this situation began. As of Monday afternoon, the sheriff's department hadn't provided us with anything. We will continue to attempt to provide more information on this event as it becomes available.
