An armed male in a fight inside a mall packed with Christmas shoppers on Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina, was fatally shot in what emergency officials described as an "officer- involved shooting."

The officers were working as off-duty security and responded to an altercation between two groups of subjects, a spokesman for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said.

Officials said the situation appeared contained.

"There was one armed subject that was shot during the altercation and he was pronounced deceased on scene by Medic. No officers were injured during this shooting," spokesman Keith Trietley said in a statement.

Further details on the person killed and the officers involved in the incident were not immediately available.
