New York Giant Players Inside Mall Of America When Fatal Shooting Occurred


Several New York Giants team members were doing what many do this time of year, shop. But they probably didn't expect a shooting to go down.

A 19-year-old man was shot and killed Friday at the well-known mall that forced it to lock down.

The Giants were in town for their Saturday game against the Minesota Vikings and we're staying at a hotel across the street from the mall. They were eventually marked safe and accounted for following the incident.

"Everyone is back in the hotel and accounted for now," Giants PR man Pat Hanlon told the AP.

According to Bloomington police, an altercation went down between two groups of men inside Nordstrom. The argument ended in gunfire around 7:50 PM. The teenage victim was struck multiple times and died, TMZ reported.

The identity of the players who went to the mall wasn't released, or the area of the mall they were in when the drama unfolded.

The team's longtime Giants radio announcer, Bob Papa, was also there and tweeted, "Scary here [at Mall of America]. Shooting in mall. On lockdown at #TwinCitiesGrill. Two gunmen at least one victim."

He then sent an update about an hour later, reassuring his followers he was safely out of the mall.

Police have not yet made any arrests.
