Authorities say a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has shot and killed a man who attacked the officer during a traffic stop in Laurens County.

Multiple media outlets reported the 22-year-old man died about 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center. His name has not been released.

Laurens County Sheriff Ricky Chastain says the man attacked the trooper with a sharp object about 3 p.m. during a traffic stop on Interstate 26 near I-385.

Patrol spokesman Sid Gaulden says Lance Cpl. T.K. Teaster has been placed on non-patrol duties while the State Law Enforcement Division investigates.

Coroner Nick Nichols says an autopsy is planned Friday.
