Help needed identifying suspects in Northlake Mall shooting
The shooting happened shortly before 2 p.m. on Sunday.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department responded to Northlake Mall in north Charlotte after a reported shooting on Sunday afternoon.
Police said they believe one shot was fired inside the mall near the DTLR shoe store after a dispute between two individuals.
Crime Stoppers has released a photo of the alleged victims.
Following the shooting, which happened around 1:48 p.m., the mall closed for the day.
Two patients were treated for reasons unrelated to gunshot wounds.
Police said nobody was injured by gunfire.
Some of the shoppers in the mall described what things were like after hearing the gunshot.
“We wanted to get out of there,” one shopper said. “We were running. A lot of people running. There was a lot of noise. There were actually still people sitting down while we were running. They were just looking around not realizing what was going on. And we let them know that there were gunshots and they needed to get up and leave.”
No arrests have been made yet in this case.
In the wake of Sunday’s incident, Northlake Mall representatives issued the following statement:
“We are working with local authorities on the incident that happened at Northlake Mall on Sunday afternoon. The mall will remain closed for the remainder of today. Please reach out to CMPD with any further questions.”
A separate shooting happened at the mall just over a month ago, only days before Christmas.
CMPD is asking anyone with any information to reach out to Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
