Officer Carraway was a 30-year law enforcement veteran and is remembered by Chief Allen Heidler as "the bravest police officer" he's ever known.

He leaves behind a wife and young adult children. 

A GoFundMe page in Carraway's name has been set up with all of the money going to his family. The memorial fund has been endorsed by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association, the South Carolina Police Chiefs Association and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Assistance Program.
