York Co. SWAT team handling standoff in Fort Mill

York County Sheriff’s Office Negotiators remain at the scene of a standoff situation off First Street in Fort Mill.

Around 12:30 this afternoon, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris said deputies were called to a home off First Street in response to a domestic situation.

That incident quickly went downhill, Faris said, and the county’s SWAT team was dispatched to the scene.

Faris said the man barricaded himself inside the home, and negotiators continue to try and coax him outside.

First Street is open now to local traffic only. The Fort Mill School District has asked buses and parents to avoid the area along Harris Road.
