YORK, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina sheriff says one of the four law enforcement officers shot while trying to find and arrest a domestic violence suspect has died.

York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson announced on the office's Facebook page that Detective Mike Doty died Wednesday.

Detective Doty began working at the York County Sheriff's Office in May of 2006. He was an investigator with the York County Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit.

Detective Doty was the Law Enforcement Officer Narcan (LEON) Program coordinator and a member of the YSCO SWAT Entry Team. The fallen deputy was also an associate advisor for the York County Explorer Post 1786.

Authorities say York County Sgt. Buddy Brown and York City Police Sgt. Kyle Cummings are recovering.

Tolson says those two officers along with Doty were SWAT team members ambushed by 47-year-old Christian McCall on Tuesday.

The sheriff says York County Sgt. Randy Clinton is awaiting surgery. His condition hasn't been released.
