Two people were hospitalized after a gun battle at Carolina Place Mall in Pinevila on Saturday afternoon, one with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The paramedics took the man who was shot to the hospital to the doctor at 5 in the evening. Just before 30, the Medic said on Twitter.
The second person had a medical condition and had non-life-threatening injuries, Medic reports. The agency did not disclose the type of medical condition.
Late Saturday night, Pineville Police Chief Mike Hudgins said the first victim’s injuries were also considered non-life-threatening. The second victim “self-organized” to the mall, he said.
Pineville police say two people started shooting at each other in a mall, Observer news partner WBTV reported.
At 4:49 p.m., police “sent gunshots into the mall,” Hudgins told a news conference at the scene.
Pineville officers immediately entered the mall and began evacuating customers, Hudgins said. Police did not say where the shooting took place inside the mall.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police և Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Deputies helped Pineville officers evacuate the mall, search for any victims or suspects. Charlotte and Pineville firefighters also provided assistance at the scene, he said.
“At the moment we have cleaned the mall as best as possible, secured the crime scene, and are now investigating the crime,” Hudgins told reporters.
Police did not say whether anyone was detained.
“Early evidence at this time suggests that this was an isolated incident between the two entities,” Hudgins said in a statement late Saturday night. “The Pineville Police Department is not actively seeking any additional suspects.”
