    Stephanie Renner said she spent several minutes outside Tuesday morning watching police cordon the area in her Fort Mill., S.C., neighborhood with crime scene tape. She didn’t hear any gunshots, she said, but realized something was amiss when her children, who left home to wait for their school bus, ran back to their house and told her there were police at a nearby house.

    CMPD’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Team was started in 2006 to help capture suspects accused of murder, rape, robbery and other crimes. VCAT officers are deputized through the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service so they can pursue suspects who flee the county or the state.
