    More info:

    http://www.theoaklandpress.com/artic...e825839681.txt

    "A 17-year-old boy from Pontiac was shot in the abdomen at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets on Sunday afternoon as part of an ongoing dispute with another teen.

    Auburn Hills police said a 16-year-old, also from Pontiac, was arrested immediately after the shooting.

    The argument was over a girl, according to Auburn Hills Police Department Lt. Casimir Miarka.

    The victim was in a vehicle with his father and was attempting to park near the entrance to Burlington Coat Factory when he spotted the suspect around 2:20 p.m. Sunday.

    A verbal argument became physical before the 16-year-old shot the 17-year-old in the abdomen with a small-caliber handgun.

    The victim’s injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

    Mall security were able to arrest the suspect shortly after the shooting. The victim was with his father, who apprehended the suspect in a bear hug before mall security made the arrest.

    “They (Great Lakes Crossing Mall Security) do a great job,” Miarka said. “That’s probably why we don’t have problems here. Their quick response was very helpful.”

    The teens did not plan to meet at the mall, Miarka said.

    “It was a chance meeting between these two,” he said. “It could’ve happened anywhere, but unfortunately it happened here. We don’t have these kind of issues here. For this to happen here is very unusual.”

    The suspect will be lodged at Oakland County Children’s Village overnight. Miarka said the suspect could face aggravated assault or attempted murder charges."

    I thought I read on this forum or somewhere else that Great Lakes Crossing had went to posting NO FIREARM signs? Does anyone know, maybe I'm mistaken?

    Our carry rights won't be affected by this garbage. An ND by an OCer in the mall...now that would be a different story.

    agreed. as a side note useless facts online says there are 2 1/2 women for every 1 man on earth. so shooting someone over a girl is silly. the 2 kids have obviously never heard the saying "theres plenty of fish in the sea"

    Obviously they don't tach kids to read around there -- or could it be!?!? people ignore the sign!?
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    There are no signs!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    No, the security team knows the difference. I was there the yesterday and again this evening, no comments, or issues. Said "Hi" to sever of the security guys, this wasn't brought up. This is in fact, the first I had heard of this.

    Kudos to the team, people make fun of rent-a-cops, but one at least that I know of, is a cop, and these guys do a good job.

    +1 there are none, I have spoken with the head of security, and there are no plans for them either. I doubt this incident will do anything but solidify our carry rights.

    Glad to hear GLX hasn't banned lawful carry!

    While we are talking about places that ban law abiding citizens from carrying, I noticed on MCRGO's website of places banning firearms was Southland Mall and the Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor. I have been to these places many of times and never seen a No Firearms sign on any of the doors I have used. Is this info outdated, or am I missing something?

    I have heard that you can't carry there, but I don't know for sure.

    Thats not going to happen GLC allows you to open carry and carry with a ccw unless you are stupid and are not a responsible gun owner and like to wave it around like a fool. There is no signs posting that you cant carry a gun, they follow the law to the letter on this.

    God I hope so. I hate it when there is a knee jerk reaction to idiocy.

    I never noticed it, I will have to look better next time I am there. I wonder if you enter the mall through one of the retailers like Best Buy if there are signs there as well?

    Is GLX security armed or did they draw straws to decide which one would rush the gunman.

    Which, I suspect, is one reason we are welcome.

    There are often Auburn Hills officers in the mall though.
