Authorities have identified 74-year-old Frederick Hopkins as the suspect in the shootings of seven law enforcement officers in Florence Wednesday night.
The Associated Press reports Hopkins is a disbarred lawyer who has been charged several times in recent years, starting with a 2014 count of disorderly conduct.
Hopkins, who lived at the site of the shootings, is in custody and being hospitalized for a head injury, the station said.
Besides the seven officers, five civilians were transported to two local trauma centers, Florence County EMS spokesperson Billy Hatchell told the local station.

Three deputies from the Florence County Sheriff's Office and four officers from the Florence Police Department were shot, authorities said.
The suspect then shot four Florence city police officers, one fatally, as officers from all around the area swarmed in to help, Florence Police Chief Allen Heidler said.
