An argument in a North Carolina mall parking lot Saturday night ended in the shooting death of a 13-year-old girl, who police said was in the wrong place at the wrong time, WSOC reported.
Two boys under the age of 16 wounded in the shooting were also not part of the argument, the station reported. They were reported to be in stable condition, ABC11 reported.
Concord police identified the girl as Avenanna Propst and said she was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Sunday, police released grainy photographs from surveillance footage of a person they believe is responsible for the shooting. The person was wearing a very distinctive red and white checked hoodie, and police said he was seen firing a gun.
Police responded to the outside entrance of Dave and Buster’s at Concord Mills Mall, about 30 minutes north of Charlotte, shortly after 8:30 p.m. on reports of a fight. When they arrived they found the two boys wounded and Propst dead.
Investigators have not said what started the fight.
