SPARTANBURG, SC (AP) A Spartanburg County man faces being charged with four counts of attempted murder after investigators say he shot at sheriff's deputies who were at his home to check on his well-being.
Sheriff's office spokesman Lt. Tony Ivey says 63-year-old James Hugh Workman is currently at a local hospital recovering from non-life-threatening injuries. Ivey says the arrest warrants will be served once Workman is able to leave the hospital.
It wasn't immediately clear Monday if he has a lawyer.
Deputies say they were called to Workman's home in Inman on Christmas Eve after he gave a relative a note saying he was thinking about killing himself.
They say Workman fired a gun at them, and that he was wounded when deputies returned fire. None of the deputies was hurt.
