Obituary : Pastor Darrell Morgan of the New Harvest Free Will Baptist Church in Lancaster shot and killed by police



A pastor at a South Carolina church who was shot by deputies at a Lancaster business after what they are calling a domestic situation died at the hospital, according to the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED).
Officials with SLED confirmed just before 3:30 p.m. Thursday that SLED agents and crime scene investigators were called out to Carolina Corner, a business on the 3100 block of Charlotte Highway.
According to SLED a woman went into the store, and her estranged husband went in after her a short time later. The two talked for a moment before the man pulled out a gun. The store owner then called 911.
Members of the New Harvest Free Will Baptist Church in Lancaster confirmed to WBTV that the man was their pastor, 60-year-old Darrell Morgan.
Deputies from the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office said when they arrived at the scene Morgan, who was in the doorway of the business, made threats and pointed his gun at them.
Two deputies fired and struck Morgan. It is not clear how many times he was hit. He was then rushed to an area hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
