The person who shot the officer "continued to flee and ... took his own life", Miller said.
This toll is significantly up from the same time a year ago, when four officers had been shot and killed; one of these officers was accidentally shot during a training exercise.
Jacobs' weapon was still holstered and he was wearing a bullet-proof vest.
"At this time, we do not believe any of the officers returned fire", the police department's statement noted.
Jacobs was pronounced dead at Greenville Memorial Hospital. Miller declined to release the name of the officer or the suspect, who briefly alluded officers after gunning their colleague but was ultimately cornered. Two officers were chasing the suspect on foot, and they observed him take his own life, Miller said.
Greenville police saw confirmed gang member Deontea Perry Mackey, 17, Friday afternoon and stopped to conduct a field interview.
