DENMARK, SC -

One person is dead and three others wounded in a shootout on a rural Bamberg County road.

WIS-TV in Columbia reports two groups of people met on the side of a road just outside Denmark in an apparent drug deal on Saturday afternoon.

Bamberg County Sheriff Edward Darnell says soon after facing off, the two groups started shooting at one another and four people were shot. Their names have not been released.

One person died and three others were transported to the hospital. Darnell says one of the victims was taken to Palmetto Health and is in critical condition.

The sheriff says two people were arrested and several law enforcement agencies were looking for a third suspect.
