Authorities say one person has been shot and killed by an officer in the Pee Dee area of South Carolina.

Dillon County Sheriff's Captain Cliff Arnette said the shooting happened Wednesday afternoon in the Lake View community. He says the officer was not injured.

Arnette told The Associated Press he is not releasing any other details at this time as authorities notify the families of the people involved.

Arnette says the State Law Enforcement Division has been called in to investigate.

Lake View is about 130 miles northeast of Charleston near the North Carolina state line.
