    Orange County sheriff's deputies shot and killed a suspected robber in a Mission Viejo mall parking structure Sunday after the man fired a gun at authorities.

    According to sheriff's spokesman Ryan Burris, the suspect disguised himself with a wig, carried a handgun and tried to rob the Fredric H. Rubel jewelry store in the Shops at Mission Viejo.

    About 5:30 p.m., mall patrons reported "strange behavior from the jewelry store employees," Burris said. "They were standing back from the jewelry cases with their hands at their sides."

    He said the suspect ransacked the store's cases and fled.

    Deputies recovered a briefcase the man was carrying but did not say whether it contained stolen merchandise.

    Deputies confronted the man outside the mall, Burris said, where he fired shots from behind a parked car. Deputies returned fire. The suspect was pronounced dead at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo.

    The district attorney's office is investigating the shooting, Burris said.

    I hate that they call this a "mall shooting" It is not, in terms of the recent trends of mass shootings.

    Deadly mall shooting in Mission Viejo???

    That isn't a deadly mall shooting...I know the media is trying really hard, but come on...that's a real stretch.

    BG robs store, BG shoots at police, BG get shot...

    I believe that has been standard operating procedure for a long, long time.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    But "Deadly mall shooting" sells so many more papers than " Deadly parking garage shooting" or " Police kill criminal"

    "Suicide by cop in mall parking garage", would be more accurate. Then again, I haven't noticed a lot of concern for accuracy in reporting lately.
    But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...
