TUKWILA - At least two people were hit by gunfire in a shooting Saturday afternoon inside Southcenter Mall as it was filled with pre-Thanksgiving shoppers, witnesses said.
An off-duty sergeant with the Washington State Patrol at the scene said one victim underwent CPR after being hit. Two victims later were rushed by ambulance to the hospital.
Two other people were put in handcuffs by officers at the scene, the trooper said.
Other witnesses told KOMO News they heard at least three shots fired just after 3:30 p.m. in front of the Forever 21 store near the mall's food court.
The gunfire sparked immediate panic, and people started running for the exits.
Police raced to the scene in their patrol cars, lights flashing.
Shoppers are being evacuated from the mall, and officers are trying to determine exactly what happened and whether a shooter remains at large.
More updates will be posted as information becomes available.
