‘Scary isn’t it?’
Images from inside the popular Oak Cliff mall revealed a bloody scene as police attended to the wounded.
One young male wearing red pants and a white shirt sprawled on the ground was attended by first responders preparing to place him on a stretcher. Another victim covered in blood was seen lying on the ground.
A motive for the gun violence was unclear, with police saying the shooting was an isolated incident and there was no ongoing threat to the public.
‘Scary isn’t it?’ Leshenda Griffin who came to the plaza to pick up beauty items told CBS News. ‘Don’t know why it happened but it’s just got to stop happening, it just doesn’t make any sense.’
The plaza sells clothing, accessories, stationery and jewelry. There is also a hair salon and an auto parts store.
The incident is the latest shooting of ongoing shootings at a shopping mall in the US.
