    A suspect is recovering from gunshot wounds, and a deputy recovering from knife wounds, after a violent confrontation in front of an Upstate Walmart.

    The Greenville County Sheriff's Office says a man went inside the store shortly after 1 this afternoon, wielding two butcher knives.

    Deputies say the man suicidal, telling customers and clerks someone was "going to die", before the event was over.

    A witnesses inside at the time told News Channel 7, the man was talking about being frustrated over losing veterans benefits.

    The Sheriff says the man was a veteran. Its unclear what his exact motive was.

    Deputies say the suspect was leaving the store when they arrived.

    A foot chase began and the man stopped.

    Two deputies fired and hit the man with a taser. They say the man lunged at the deputies and threw a knife at one of them cutting the the deputy's leg.

    They say another deputy shot the man three times in the abdomen, leg and arm.

    The suspect was airlifted to the hospital, and the deputy taken by ambulence. The deputy was treated and released Tuesday night.

    The suspect remained in surgery.

    The Sheriff referred to him as a "veteran" of the force.

    SLED will investigate as well, as is usual for officer involved shootings.

    The Sheriff says the man brought the weapons into the store with him.

    The store was filled with customers and employees at the time of the incident. No one else was hurt.

    Names of those involved were not released Tuesday.

    WSPA will update this article when more information becomes available.

    Sorry but I am concerned we may be seeing a lot more of this. In a bad economy, a lot of people have been and are losing benefits or jobs, and if they think they can't make it without these things, look out.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Freedom Doc - I fear you are correct. And there will be times these folks will not be concerned about who they strike out at. Be prepared at all times. An LEO might not always arrive in time.

    At least a Walmart employee did not intervene, or we would have one more unemployed.
