Two of the wounded officers have been released from the hospital. The conditions of the three sheriff's deputies who were wounded were not immediately known.
The officers were shot as they tried to serve a search warrant on a home in Florence, according to Florence County Chief Deputy Glenn Kirby. Lott said others remain in critical condition but did not provide details.
Meanwhile, authorities said Friday that Wednesday's shootings would be investigated by the same special Federal Bureau of Investigation team that worked on the slayings of five police officers in Dallas in 2016 and last October's mass shooting in Las Vegas.

South Carolina's governor has ordered flags lowered to half-staff after the shooting of seven law-enforcement officers, including one who died.

Heidler described Carraway as "my brother" and "the epitome of a community police officer".
"He had a passion for kids ... to see kids in impoverished areas have the opportunity to do the things they might not have the opportunity" to do, Heidler said. "I just love the smell of gunpowder in the mornin'".
And Florence, Mayor Stephen J. Wukela said Thursday, was left "in the grips of emotions ranging from pain to anger and guilt".
Seth Hopkins had been made aware the deputies were coming to question him, Lott said.
