GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies on the scene of an unrelated investigation said they were able to locate potential assault suspects driving by.

According to deputies, an altercation was reported at Mike and Jack's gas station on Augusta Road.

A short time later, deputies performed a traffic stop on a suspect's car at the Bi-Lo Grocery Store on South Pleasantburg Drive, which is less than a mile away from the gas station, according to Deputy Jonathan Smith.

Deputies were already in the area of the Bi-Lo store when the traffic stop took place about noon. Deputies were investigating a woman's death, hotel room fire and reported explosion at the Quality Inn and Suites, but the two cases are not related according to Smith.

FOX Carolina's crew at the scene of the traffic stop said four people were taken into custody.

Smith said officers at the scene believed the people in the car had weapons.

No names have been released regarding the traffic stop.
