Man wanted for killing 2 in Minnesota shot by police in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Police in South Carolina say they shot and wounded a man who was wanted in Minnesota for killing his pregnant girlfriend and her 2-year-old daughter.

Authorities say 29-year-old Renard Lydell Carter was headed to South Carolina to kill an ex-girlfriend.

Investigators say they got that woman to safety and then found Carter at a Columbia hotel Sunday night.

Police say Carter pointed a BB gun that looked like a real rifle at officers.

Police in Rochester, Minnesota, say Carter killed 23-year-old Keona Sade Foote and 2-year-old Miyona Zayla Miller in their home.

Their bodies were found Sunday afternoon about eight hours before officers found Carter in South Carolina.
