10 South Carolina Schools Locked Down For Manhunt, (AP) — A gunman fired on a police officer checking on a suspicious license plate Friday, causing 10 schools nearby to go on lockdown, though some began reopening their doors to some visitors after a couple of hours.

The shooting happened around 10 a.m. at an apartment complex, police spokeswoman Alia Urps said. The officer returned fire and was not hit. It’s unknown if the suspect was hit. She was unsure how many shots were fired.

The suspect was able to run into nearby woods and hasn’t been seen since. Several dozen officers who happened to be in a training session nearby rushed to help search, authorities said.

“We’re asking everyone in the area to stay inside until we determine the area is safe,” Urps said.

She said an officer checking on license plates in a hotel parking lot discovered that one was listed for a different vehicle. When she went inside the hotel to inquire about the driver, the suspect got in the vehicle and fled. The officer got back in her car and tried to pull the suspect over, but he sped up, and she abandoned pursuit, Urps said.
