Lexington County sheriff's deputies are searching for a suspect who they say pointed a gun at them.
The incident happened early yesterday on Devils Backbone Road in Leesville when a woman pulled a cop over about a suspicious person in the roadway. The deputy made contact with the subject who pulled a handgun on the officer.
The deputy then fired his weapon, but the subject ran away. Police are still looking for the woman who flagged the deputy down to ask her questions.
