LANCASTER, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man was fatally shot by Lancaster County sheriff’s deputies after they say he pointed a gun at officers responding to a dispute between him and his estranged wife at a store.

The Rock Hill Herald (https://bit.ly/1KsshoA) reports 60-year-old Darrell Morgan was pronounced dead Thursday afternoon at Springs Memorial Hospital. The State Law Enforcement Division says deputies arrived at the store after Morgan reportedly pulled out a handgun after a discussion with his estranged wife and the store manager called 911.

SLED spokesman Thom Berry says hen the deputies entered the building, the man made threats and started to point the gun at the deputies. Two officers fired at the man, and it is unclear how many times they fired their weapons.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
