(( The unidentified victim had been arrested for shoplifting at Belk Department store at Piedmont Mall only moments before-- but he shoved a police officer and fled from the mall.
Police say Officer Hancock found the suspect in a parking lot of a nearby furniture store and chased him behind the building...
Police say the man then used Hancock's pepper mace to spray the officer in the face, and the two wrestled for the policeman's weapon.
The gun went off--striking the victim in the chest.
State police are still investigating the shooting, and still trying to figure out the victim's name.
The same man was arrested last week for credit card theft, but gave authorities fake names and addresses.
One of those addresses was 174 Gray Street in Danville.
The man who lives there says he knew the victim only as "D" but D had stayed with him off and on for several months.
This resident, who refused to give his name, says a second man was with "D" and was also arrested for shoplifting. ))
