LOOK: Shooting at Fashion Show Mall leaves 3 people injured by Folake(f) : 12:48 pm On Jan 22
Three people were injured in a shooting at the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas police have said.
The shooting was reported around 6:15pm on Tuesday night, January 21.
Employees of the mall were notified by text of an incident and were asked to stay in place. Entrances to the mall at Las Vegas Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road were closed off just after the call came in.
When officers arrived, they found three individuals suffering from what appear to be non-life threatening gunshot wounds. The attack appeared to be an isolated incident as there was no further threat to the public.
A Twitter user wrote;
“Shooting here at fashion show mall in Vegas, shooter was right in front of my job! There is blood everywhere.. I have families with me staying safe here in the back of my job . Please RETWEET AND SHARE FOR PEOPLES SAFETY AND GET IN CONTACT WITH ANY FAMILY MEMBERS! I AM SAFE!,” Twitter user @AlylanaC tweeted.
The incident started inside the mall with an altercation, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Capt. Dori Koren said, but details of what led up to the shooting were still being investigated.
“I had just got done helping a customer and heard something loud but I thought someone had just dropped a board,” said Luis Cazares, who was working at a store in the mall at the time of the shooting.
He said he and his coworkers grabbed customers in the store and brought them to the back. “After that, I heard another one go off and then everybody just starts running and screaming.”
After she heard the second shot, mall employee Celora Currie said she saw people running.
“If they’re running from something, I should be running, too,” she said.
The mall was evacuated shortly after.
Capt. Koren said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.
“People come there to like have fun and shop without being terrified of being shot,” Cazares said.
Police said they were still looking for a suspect or suspects but said they were no longer at the mall.
“We believe in relentless follow-up, so we will make sure every single detail is looked upon and investigate this to ensure that it does not happen again,” Capt. Koren said on scene.
