Frenzy at local mall

Hi everyone, this is Paul Cameron in the WBTV Newsroom. An odd thing happened at Concord Mills Mall today-- a man went into a frenzy, throwing furniture and sucker-punching people. We're with police as they try to find out what caused his violence.

For the second time in a week, a horse-drawn carriage goes out of control and crashes. Last week, it was in Savannah. Tonight, a carriage overturned in Charleston. Fortunately, none of the people in the carriage were injured.

Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford came close to death last year. He went to dinner with friends, felt discomfort in his chest, went to the bathroom and collapsed. Luckily, a friend called 911 and doctors were able to save him. Kristen Miranda has the story of Clifford's close call.

Trending tonight is a Lake Wylie woman who got bitten by a Copperhead snake while walking her dog. While extremely painful, experts tell us it's rare to die from a snakebite-- unless you do the wrong thing. What is the wrong thing? That's our trending question tonight-- would you know what to do after a snakebite?

Please join Molly Grantham, Kelly Franson and me for WBTV News at 11:00 in just a few minutes!
