Pennsylvania: 3 Shot at Mall, 2 in Critical Condition; Shooter SoughtPosted: February 7, 2015
MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police say three people were wounded, two critically, when gunfire erupted at a Pittsburgh-area mall in a shooting that appears to have been targeted.
The Monroeville Mall was evacuated after the shooting Saturday evening in Macy’s and placed on lockdown while police search for the gunman.
Police Chief Doug Cole says the shooting doesn’t appear to be random.
He says no one has been taken into custody, but police have some good leads.
Forbes Hospital reports that the three victims were taken there with gunshot wounds. Police say two are in critical condition.
In late December, hundreds of teenagers gathered at the mall and several fights broke out. The fights caused local officials and mall administration to agree on a plan to increase security there.
