Four people have been injured, two of them critically so, after shots were fired outside South Park Mall in San Antonio, local officials and witnesses say. No arrests were immediately made and police are searching for the shooter.
The incident happened just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday when shots were fired outside the mall on San Antonio’s southwest side. It was not immediately clear what led to the shooting, which happened just before closing time.
Witnesses said the victims were shot on the JCPenney side of the mall. All four were taken to area hospitals, including two people who were said to be in serious or critical condition and two who were suffering from non-life threatening injuries.
