Police: One dead in Florida mall shooting
(CNN) — One person was dead and two others injured Saturday after a shooting at a central Florida mall.
The alleged gunman was the lone fatality in the shooting.
The Melbourne Square Mall was closed after officers emptied it “store by store.”
A witness said gunfire erupted in the food court and two people were injured before the gunman shot himself, CNN affiliate WESH reported.
A caller to 911 reported the shooting at about 9:30 a.m., police said.
Five or six shots were fired, according to the witness, WESH reported. The mall was closed for the day; employees were leaving through back doors.
