The first notification 9-1-1 dispatchers received in regards to the situation came from Paul Nance. As the HCSD’s report explains, Nance resides at the aforementioned location with his girlfriend, Christie Duncan.
According to Nance, Duncan had attempted to take her own life with a shotgun before police arrived. Nance said that he had attempted to “wrestle” the firearm away from Duncan, yet during the struggle, the shotgun fired. As a result, both individuals received direct head wounds. Unfortunately, Duncan’s injuries are potentially life threatening.
Deputy Will Coursey and Deputy Lampton arrived on the scene and relieved Nance, who was administering first aid prior to their arrival. Both deputies proceeded to administer first aid to Duncan until EMS arrived at the residence. Following the arrival of Med Center Ambulance units, Duncan was life-flighted to St. Mary’s Medical Center where she was listed in “Critical” condition.
Additionally, Nance was transported to the Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.
Detective Scott Troutman was also called to the scene to further investigate, yet as of this report no new information has been released.
