A disgruntled man with a gun killed a former co-worker at a popular Charleston restaurant Thursday and took at least one other person hostage for hours until police shot him.
Terrified lunchtime diners crawled and ran from Virginia’s On King after the gunman barged in after noon, locked the door and announced “I am the new king of Charleston,” witnesses said.
the officers contained the shooter on the second floor of the King Street restaurant before they could confront him during a tactical operation. The suspect, described as an older man, was critically wounded.
No one else was hurt.
