FOX 13 shared pictures on Twitter of police officers with guns drawn running through the mall as they searched for the suspects.

Shoppers and store employees reportedly locked themselves in rooms as officials responded to the incident.

Police placed the mall on lock down and escorted people out with their hands in the air.

Police told FOX 13 that two people were injured — a man and woman both in their 20’s. The victims were reportedly transported to a local hospital.  The man is in critical condition and the woman in serious condition.

Officials believe the shooting may have been “gang-related” and are searching for three people who fled the mall, FOX 13 reports.

“We do not know their identities, we have descriptions of them,” Murray Police Det. Kenny Bass reportedly said.

Fashion Place Mall released the following statement to the news outlet and said the mall was closed:

“We are very saddened by the incident that happened outside our shopping center this afternoon. We are grateful to our security and the quick response of our partners at the Murray Police Department. At this time we are directing all inquiries to the Murray Police Department. This is a developing investigation and we are providing whatever aide necessary to law enforcement. Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our guests and tenants. The shopping center is currently closed.”

This is a developing story. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
