GREENVILLE, S.C. (WBTW/WSPA) – An armed man died Sunday during a shootout with Greenville police following a traffic stop, the chief confirmed. 

The man and his vehicle matched descriptions from an earlier fatal shooting, officers said. It’s unclear how the shootout with officers started.

Police identified the victim of the first shooting as an avid cyclist, but the coroner’s office hasn’t released the person’s name.

SLED is investigating the second shooting, which is standard procedure when police shoot someone. Two officers have been placed on administrative leave. They were not injured.
