Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller said Officer Allen Jacobs and a second officer were trying to question 17-year-old Deondea Mackey on Friday when he ran. Miller initially said the officers were trying to serve a warrant.
Miller said Jacobs chased Mackey, who ran behind a house. The second officer heard gun shots and when he reached the scene, he found Jacobs on the ground.
According to Miller, Mackey made a phone call before he shot and killed himself. The chief said earlier that Mackey had called his mother.
Miller said Jacobs was an Iraqi war veteran.
