Officer killed in South Carolina mall shooting, police say.

A police officer responding to a report of a suspicious person was fatally shot at a suburban South Carolina mall on Wednesday, and police say a suspect is in custody. FOREST ACRES – A 32-year-old Forest Acres police officer was remembered as an outstanding officer and role model after he was shot and killed by a suspect at the Richland Mall Wednesday. Two officers responded and attempted to talk to the person, who fled on foot and ran through parts of Richland Mall, including the Barnes and Noble bookstore, officials said. Flora High School, a few blocks from the mall, was briefly put on lockdown following the shooting, but the school has since resumed normal operations.
