Three people were killed at a mall in Greenwood, Ind., on Sunday in a shooting that ended when an armed man fatally shot the gunman, city authorities said.
Two additional people were hospitalized in the shooting, which began at around 6 p.m. Eastern time when a man with a rifle and several magazines of ammunition entered the mall's food court and started firing, Chief JimIson of the Greenwood Police Department said. The authorities did not indicate a motive for the shooting and did not identify the gunman.
The injured were a 12-year-old girl who suffered a very minor wound on her back and another person who was in stable condition, Chief Ison said.
Mayor Mark Myers said late Sunday that the public faced no further threat and that the Police Department was in control of the scene. He asked the public to stay away from the area.
"I've been a police officer most of my life," he said in an interview. "Still, this is incredibly shocking, to not only me but our entire community."
