Earlier this morning around 3:00 AM in Cayce, South Carolina police responded to a domestic disturbance. While on scene one of the officers who has been identified as Roy Andrew “Drew” Barr was fatally shot.

A preliminary investigation determined that someone from inside opened fire and officer Barr was hit by one bullet.

After a seven hour standoff, the suspect who shot officer Barr, shot himself. 

Officer Barr became a police officer in 2016, he survived a 2017 shooting and later in 2020 became a K9 handler with his department. He was also a captain with the Monetta Volunteer Fire Department.
