FLORENCE, S.C. -- A brief manhunt Thursday ended when Florence County Sheriff’s deputies discovered the identity of the person they were chasing.

Maj. Mike Nunn Friday said the manhunt started after a deputy assigned to the agency’s Traffic Safety Unit tried to make a traffic stop near Sumter Street. The driver didn’t initially stop and when they did, the driver got out of the car and ran, Nunn said.

Nunn said deputies will seek to obtain warrants against the suspect.
