Seven adults and a teenager were wounded in the shooting at Mayfair Mall, just before 3 p.m. on Friday. Police Chief Barry Weber said that the shooting happened during an altercation between two groups at the mall. Four of the people wounded were involved in the altercation, he said, and the other four were “innocent bystanders.”

All eight were taken to hospitals for non-life-threatening injuries, and most have been released, Weber said.

Police told TMJ4 they could not say if the altercation was gang-related. Investigators are working with the district attorney’s office to determine charges for all three suspects.

Police have not named any of the suspects.

The mall was closed on Saturday while detectives continued their investigation and reopened on Sunday.
