The alleged gunman was the lone fatality in the shooting.

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.
