Deputy Andrew Mazur was shot and killed after he stopped a person in the street.

Deputy Mazur was on patrol and at approximately 1730 hours, he radioed in that he was stopping a person. The reason for the stop was unknown.

The deputy first called for routine backup, but less than a minute later, he radioed for emergency backup. When backup deputies arrived, they found Deputy Mazur had been shot once in the head and killed. His service weapon was missing.

The suspect fled the scene and committed suicide the following morning after a shootout with police in which he was shot once by a deputy. The suspect killed himself with Deputy Mazur’s service weapon.

Deputy Mazur had served with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office for 2 years. He is survived by his wife.
