Police shot and killed an 18-year-old man Thursday as hundreds of Christmas Eve shoppers hid and were evacuated from a suburban Charlotte, North Carolina, mall, authorities said.

An off-duty Charlotte-Mecklenburg County police officer working security at Northlake Mall, about 8 miles north of downtown Charlotte, responded to gunfire during an altercation among “a group of subjects who have a history of feuding” about 2 p.m. ET, Police Chief Kerr Putney said early Thursday evening.

The officer, identified as Thomas Ferguson, discovered that two people were armed, Putney said. When one of the people pointed a weapon, the officer opened fire, he said. The man, identified as Daquan Antonio Westbrook, was pronounced dead a short time later.

It hadn’t been determined whether Westbrook fired back at police, Putney said.

    Well, I guess Westbrook learned not to go around shooting at people to resolve beefs.

    Good thing the cop was armed. Too bad the kids were. Maybe there should be a law about that kind of stuff.

    Another suicide by cop. Another example of Darwin’s Theory of Survival of the fittest.

    If the guy with the gun POINTS the gun, you don’t have to wait for him to shoot in order to take action. If he had shot first, the cop would probably be dead.

    Lynch has an appropriate name, doesn’t she. That is what she is supposed to do to America

  • Thomas Goss

    It doesn’t matter if he fired at the cop, if he pointed a gun at him the shooting was justified. PERIOD NO NEED TO GET LYNCH INVOLVED.

    Another make believe Obama son?
