(CBS News) A man armed with a shotgun shot one person outside a North Carolina law firm Friday before darting across a busy street and wounding three others outside a Wal-Mart before officers subdued him, police said.

Officers confronted the man outside the store and caught up with him behind a nearby Toys “R” Us. He fired at them and they shot multiple rounds back, wounding the gunman, said Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden. The suspect was expected to survive as well as the four others he’s accused of shooting, Aden said.

The gunman’s first target was seated in his car outside the Kellum Law Firm on the city’s south side, Aden said at a news conference. The firm’s main office in New Bern declined comment. Kellum has nine personal injury offices in the eastern part of the state.
