Cops were called around 6pm local time to respond to an active shooter at the mall.

Terrified shoppers described running for their lives after hearing around 20 gunshots in the food court area, a reporter at the scene said.

The suspect, identified only as an adult male, walked in with a rifle and multiple magazines before opening fire in the mall's food court.

The shooter killed three and wounded two others before a 22-year-old armed Good Samaritan took him down, Greenwood Police Chief James Ison said in a press conference.

"The real hero of the day is the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in the food court, and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began," the chief said.

Those suffering gunshot wounds were taken to a local hospital.
