A double homicide led to a shootout between police and a suspect in York County on Friday, officials said.

Police responded to calls around 8 p.m. about two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. When deputies arrived, they found two victims critically injured. One was transferred to Piedmont Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

It is unclear at this time how the second individual died.

Rock Hill resident Jimar Neely, 28, was immediately identified as a suspect and a brief search ensued, where he was shortly after located in what witnesses has described as a black Dodge Charger.

Officers attempted to stop the vehicle and Neely and deputies exchanged gunfire. Frazier stopped the car at the intersection of Church Road and Neely's Store Road, and took off on foot where he was quickly apprehended.

Neely was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No deputies were injured in the gunfire exchange.
