C-200962 Oconee County Sheriff's Office Badge South Carolina AR SHERIFF.png

On the afternoon of November 16, 2023, Oconee County Sheriffs deputies pulled over a man driving a pick-up truck. However, after initially pulling over, the man sped away. The driver led officers on a pursuit when, about four miles down, shots were fired.

Corporal Lucas Watts was hit by gunfire and seriously injured. He has undergone multiple surgeries. At this time, he is in stable but critical condition.

Cpl Watts is a six-year law enforcement veteran. He and his wife, Haley, welcomed their first child in September 2023.

This fundraiser is intended to support Corporal Watts and his family moving forward in his recovery. 100% of the funds raised will be given to Corporal Watts. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
