Twenty years ago on Friday night, September 25th 1992, York County Sheriff Deputy Brent McCants stopped a car on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill for driving without its lights on.
A short 45 seconds later a passerby radioed "may day" via Deputy McCants radio.
Deputy McCants was shot and killed in the line of duty by Mar-Reece Hughes and Dwayne Forney. More than 100 police officers from agencies throughout York County searched for and arrested both men within hours of the incident.
"Though such a tragic event, it was one of the best joint efforts of law enforcement communities working to make sure the culprits were caught and justice was done," said Sheriff Bruce Bryant.
Sheriff Bryant was an agent with the State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) at the time and was the lead investigator on the case.
Deputy McCants was 23 years old and had been with the York County Sheriff's office for only 18 months prior to his death.
"We never want to forget the sacrifice that was made by Deputy McCants that day, and make sure the people of York County remember the sacrifices our law enforcement officers make every day to protect the public," said Sheriff Bryant.
To remember and honor Deputy Brent McCants and the ultimate sacrifice he made, all law enforcement officers of the York County Sheriff's Office will wear black mourning bands on their badges beginning on Monday, September 24th and through Tuesday, September 25th.
The U. S. flag will also be flown at half-staff outside the Moss Justice Center on Tuesday September 25th, 2012.
There have been two deputies killed in the line of duty who served with the York County Sheriff's Office. Elliot P. Harris, 26, was also shot and killed during a traffic stop July 17, 1932 near the town of Fort Mill.
