COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of two South Carolina deputies and a man involved in a police shooting earlier this month.

The Saluda County Sheriff’s Office said Friday that Lt. Russ Padget and Deputy Dale Hallman, along with three Lexington County deputies were trying to serve an arrest warrant on Samuel Huguenin Jr. on May 13.

Authorities say Huguenin drove his car into the deputies’ vehicle and was shot in an exchange of gunfire.

Deputies say Padget was treated and released for minor injuries from the crash. Huguenin is still hospitalized and under around-the-clock guard.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is investigating. The deputies involved are on administrative leave.
