COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A Richland County sheriff's deputy was shot at after responding to a vebal altercation at a residence early Sunday morning.

Sgt. Curtis Wilson with the Richland County Sheriff's Department said Deputy Douglas Rooks was conducting a property check at the Shandon Crossing apartments in the 500 block of South Beltline just after midnight when he was approached by a resident who said there was a loud verbal altercation happening inside an apartment in the "E" building.

Rooks then responded to the building and heard a loud noise coming from the apartment between a man and a woman, Wilson said.

While Rooks was knocking on the door, a person fired shots from inside the apartment through the door at the deputy, Wilson said.

Wilson said as deputies continued to attempt to make contact, 22-year-old Jacob Mabry came out disoriented and exited the residence. Regina Loundagin, 22, was also inside the residence.

Rooks was treated for non-life threatening injuries, Wilson said.

Mabry was arrested and charged with attempted murder and is currently in the Alvin S. Glenn Regional Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing. Loudagin was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
