Eye witnesses said couple of young men were seen in a dispute in the heart of the mall at the intersects of two major wings. One among them pulled out a handgun and fired. Some say it was multiple shots from the handgun while others had heard just one shot.

The one injured is a 19-year-old man and is being said he was involved in the dispute. The bullet struck him in the leg and is now in a nearby hospital. His injury is non-life-threatening.

A worker at a mall kiosk said it was a chaotic scene and thousands of people tried fleeing the area together.

A shopper Evan Flood said the argument among the young men were high and heated up and before the gunfire a couple of punches were also seen being thrown at each other.
