GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say a suspect has been shot and killed following a confrontation with officers in the parking lot of the Greenville County Law Enforcement Center.

Police say an officer was walking to his car when a man approached him in a threatening manner with what appeared to be a weapon. Investigators say a sheriff's deputy in his patrol car stepped out to help the officer. They say the officer and the deputy fired when the man refused to put down what appeared to be a weapon.
