(CNN)Officer Terrence Carraway rushed to respond when a gunman opened fire from a home in Florence County, South Carolina. As the barrage of bullets kept coming, he and his colleagues had to be rescued.
Carraway was among seven law enforcement officers who were shot Wednesday evening during a standoff that began hours earlier when deputies attempted to execute a search warrant.
The 30-year veteran of the Florence Police Department was minutes away when he got the call to help fellow officers. He died later on his way to the hospital, city of Florence spokesman John Wukela said.
