Indianapolis

: A gunman opened fire inside the Washington Square Mall on the east-side of Indianapolis, wounding three people according to police.

An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police spokesman said the shooting occurred at about 630PM on Wednesday in a mall corridor where the suspect encountered a man he knew and opened fire, wounding him and two other people, police said.

“This was a targeted individual. They had words,” Deputy Chief Brian Mahone said during a news conference aired on local television. “This is not a random act.”

The suspect fled the mall and is not in custody, Mahone said.

The wounded man along with a woman and another man who were also shot managed to run through a Target Store connected to the mall after the incident and were taken to nearby hospitals, Indianapolis Police Sergeant Kendale Adams said.

“None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening,” Adams said by telephone.
