VIDEO: South Carolina Officer Killed in Crash of Two Patrol Cars

A four-year veteran of the Columbia Police Department was killed in a crash while responding to a shots fired call on Saturday night.

Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said 37-year-old Stacy L. Case died as a result of injuries sustained in a crash with a University of South Carolina Police Department SUV at the intersection of College and Park Streets at about 10:15 p.m. on Saturday.

Officer Case was responding to a report of shots fired at Gervais and  Lincoln Streets at the time. The incident was later determined to be a suicide.

Chief Holbrook said Officer Case was taken by EMS to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital where she died.

A University of South Carolina spokesperson tells WIS USCPD officer Sgt. Allan Bolin is in stable condition with non-life threatening injuries.

Breaks my heart, almost lost two brothers at once. Take it from an "old guard" cop, please young or new cops...please take care in responding to calls. 90% of the time the call is NOT what dispatch says it is, we all know how inaccurate many 9-1-1 callers can be. The other 10% of the calls the suspect/offender is gone anyway so don't kill yourself getting to the scene. This goes not only for the type of call and its severity but descriptions of suspects cars etc. We all know most information relied via radio or MDT is not the full story, or even related to what really happened. When responding to a call always remember, as I was taught by a real old guard FTO..."kid if you don't get there the citizen or the officer you are backing up are plain screwed,(other word used) so remember, get there in one piece or you don't help nobody and just make things worse". Words I lived by and helped me to stay alive to retirement.

Kevin, well said. We lose too many fine LEOs due to TAs while responding. It's almost like they forget what they've been taught. Yeah, we all know that rush but we're losing way too many. Blues, Stay Safe.
