    YORK, S.C. - The York County Sheriff’s Office and State Law Enforcement Division are investigating after a man was killed by a deputy during a shooting that took place in York early Friday.

    The shooting happened shortly after 4 a.m. when police responded to a civil disturbance call near the 700 block of East Old Limestone Road, according to officials.

    The York County Coroner's Office told Channel 9 that it was called to the scene, where a man, identified as 23-year-old Trent Fondren, was killed.

    No officers were hurt.

    Neighbors told Channel 9 they were sad to learn about the shooting.

    "I don't like to hear of anybody having this happen this time of year,” said Christine Stewart. “It’s sad, it's really sad."

    Natasha Tarberake lives a few doors down from where the shooting occurred.

    "We've never known of any issues in the two years we've been here,” she said. “It's very safe out here, very quiet. This is the first time we've run across anything."

    SLED has been called in to investigate the shooting, which is standard procedure in all officer-involved shootings.

    East Old Limestone Road was reopened around noon.
