What happened

Police were called to the mall at 3:40 p.m. Saturday for a report of an active shooting with multiple victims, authorities said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

David Nathaniel Barron was found dead in a common area, and a woman was taken to the hospital and is being treated for injuries that are not life-threatening, police said.

“We believe the shooter fled the area and is at large,” police wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, at 6:08 p.m. Saturday. “We also believe this shooting may have been targeted.”
