Coroner: Man wearing bulletproof vest says, 'Shoot me,' is killed

A 25-year-old South Carolina man who put on a bullet-proof vest and asked to be shot was killed Wednesday morning.

Now 18-year-old girl is charged in the death.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown said Blake Randall Wardell was hanging around with some other people in a garage when he put on a bullet-proof vest they had found.
