Suspect arrested on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping after police standoff in Fort Mill

FORT MILL, S.C. — A suspect wanted for attempted murder and kidnapping is in custody after a standoff Wednesday in Fort Mill, according to the York County Sheriff’s Office.

Negotiators with the York County Sheriff’s Office and the SWAT team were in the area of Wimbleton Woods Drive and Brittany Lane Wednesday morning, deputies say.

A neighbor says she was woken up by orders being read over a loudspeaker about an arrest warrant. Law enforcement eventually broke down the door and took Robert Clinton Coffee into custody.

The sheriff’s office told Channel 9 Coffee is wanted on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime from a situation that happened last Saturday.

Channel 9 is working to get more information on the incident.

Residents told Channel 9 how law enforcement kept them safe during this unpredictable standoff.

“I poked my head out and they said go back inside,” said Kim Versace, “I said okay, you don’t have to say any more.”

Deputies said they will stay at the house while they search for additional evidence.
