10 US schools locked down after gun battle: report

Friday October 28, 2011 11:07:52 PM, IANS

Washington: Ten schools were locked down Friday after police exchanged fire with a suspect in the US state of South Carolina, local media reported.

The gunfire broke out in Greenville, South Carolina, when a police officer was searching an apartment of a man she had previously chased for a suspected license plate on his vehicle, according to the local news outlet WYFF4, said Xinhua.

The officer stepped into a breezeway where someone popped up and immediately began firing on her, the report quoted Police Chief Terri Wilfong as saying. She returned fire and multiple shots were fired in what the chief called a "gun battle."

The officer was forced to fire and was not injured in the shoot- out, Wilfong said. It is not known if the shooter, who managed to duck away and was still at large, was hit or not.

A massive manhunt was underway, leading to the lockdown of ten schools nearby.
