One man is dead after a deputy-involved shooting Monday afternoon in Simpsonville. 

Greenville county deputies say they responded in regards to an alarm call just after 4:45 p.m. in the 100 block of Putman Street. 

When they arrived, they noticed an adult male come out of a  building behind the residence. 

Deputies say when they "challenged" the man,  he ran back into the building and began to yell to deputies that he had a hostage. 

Moments later, the man came out the building with a woman hostage and was armed.

At least one deputy then fired at the man, striking him at least once.

No one else was injured.

The shooting is under investigation by SLED.
