Chesterfield County authorities have now identified a man who died from his injuries following a 15-hour armed standoff with law enforcement this weekend.
63-year-old Norman Campbell died at a nearby hospital from gunshot injuries, according to the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said they responded to the home north of Cheraw about shots fired around 9 p.m. Friday night. Charlotte-based WSOC-TV reports Campbell barricaded himself inside the home and fired several times. The deputies called for backup and attempted to negotiate with Campbell. A State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) SWAT team also arrived on the scene that night.
Around noon Saturday, deputies said Campbell stepped outside his home with a gun and “challenged law enforcement with a firearm,” according to the sheriff’s office. He was shot shortly afterwards. Early reports do not say how many times or where he was hit.
An initial review did not find any Chesterfield County criminal history for Campbell.
SLED normally handles investigations of officer-involved shootings in South Carolina, but has requested Florence County Sheriff’s Office to take over since some of SLED’s own officers were involved. Saturday’s shots fired were the 18th officer-involved shootings statewide this year.
