Greenville County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man who is wanted on several violent crimes following a three hour manhunt Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff's deputies, along with K-9 deputies and the sheriff's office helicopter searched the area until almost 7:30 p.m. but were unable to find Gossett, who has 17 warrants out for his arrest; among which are discharging a firearm into a dwelling, possession of a sawed off shotgun, possession of a sawed off rifle and unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition by a felon.
