LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A woman who allegedly shot at deputies in Laurens County has been taken into custody.

The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was searching for a woman who they say fired shots at deputies Thursday morning.

The search began after deputies were attempting a traffic stop. They said she fled on foot with deputies pursuing her, at which point she fired shots over her shoulder.

No deputies were shot, the sheriff’s office confirmed. The firearm was discarded and recovered.

They searched at Highway 101 South near the Hellams Road area in Gray Court for Melissa Miller. They believe she ran into the woods, but did not believe she was a threat to the public, deputies on scene said.

The search was called off, but deputies continued checking around homes.

She was later found on Georgia Road in Gray Court, according to the sheriff’s office.
