At Least 3 Dead in Shopping Mall Shooting — Gunman Stopped by Good Samaritan with Handgun

At least three people are dead after a gunman began firing inside the Greenwood Park Mall in Indiana Sunday evening, police said.

Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison said during a press conference the gunman was also dead and another two victims were injured and being treated. Their conditions were not known.

The shooter was stopped after a Good Samaritan armed with a handgun fired at the suspect, Ison said. That person is cooperating fully, Ison said.

“We believe at this time, investigators are still questioning the individual involved, but it appears that a Good Samaritan who was armed observed the shooting in progress and shot the shooter,” Ison said.

Everyone has been evacuated from the mall following the shooting that began around 6 p.m., Ison said.

“As you can imagine this type of situation is horrible,” Ison said. “It’s rocked us to our core.”

The gunman was a male who had a long rifle with several magazines of ammunition and began firing at the food court, Ison said during the press conference streamed by WTHR. His identity has not been revealed.

A motive is not known at this time, Ison said.

    How did he get to a place in the mall without someone noticing the guy with a long rifle. I mean was he wearing a coat in the summer and another obvious, reason to suspect something was wrong! Glad a person with a pistol stopped the person!

    Thank God a civilian was carrying a gun and knew when and how to use it. He most likely ended a massacre very quickly and efficiently and the shooter will not be getting out of jail early and will never do it again. One bad guy gone that we no longer need to even think about. Cleanly done.

    Yeah… defund the police and dis-arm the citizens? Anyone that doesn’t see what outcome our Government is seeking is an idiot or a Liberal… oh yeah, they’re the same thing!
