Officer-Involved Shooting Reported at South Carolina Mall

Law enforcement officials are investigating a report of an officer-involved shooting at a shopping mall near Columbia, South Carolina.

Richland County Sheriff's spokesman Chris Cowan says two Forest Acres officers were called to a report of a suspicious person at Richland Mall around 8 a.m. Wednesday. Cowan says that during the investigation, shots were fired.



Cowan didn't say who was shot. Cowan says one person was taken to a hospital. State Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry says the agency was called shortly before 8:30 a.m. to assist. He says SLED agents and crime scene technicians were requested, and a number are at the scene.
