The off-duty Summerville Police Department officer and 39-year-old Michael O’Neal got into an altercation at a Summerville Chik-fil-A at 1312 North Main Street in Berkeley County on Wednesday.

O’Neal was shot by the officer and died at the scene. The officer was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
