A gunman opened fire in a parking lot in Greenville, N.C. The gunman was shot by police after wounding at least three victims outside a Walmart and Kellum Law Firm. The suspect is in custody in a nearby hospital. The condition of the victims is not currently known.

The Greenville shooter had a rifle and wore a bullet-proof vest. He fired at authorities when they arrived, and they fired back, wounding and subduing him. One shooting victim is believed to be an insurance adjustor who was shot while hiding behind a car.

Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden said his police crew delivered an "outstanding response" with "outstanding coordination," to the incident. Of course he is going to say that, but the evidence backs it up: no police officers are among the wounded and the shooter was neutralized without being killed.

For now the Kellum Law Firm and Walmart in Greenville are both considered crime scenes.
