DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Galleria Dallas was evacuated Tuesday night after a shooting in the food court on the third floor Tuesday evening.
The call came in around 6:45 p.m., shortly before the mall’s closing time.
Officers are reviewing mall video and searching for a suspect, but say this is not an active shooter situation and the suspect left the mall.
One person was injured and rushed to the hospital in an ambulance with lights and sirens going.
As of late Tuesday night, there was no word on the victim’s condition.
The incident happened after an argument between two people in their late teens or early 20s escalated.
Police said the victim and suspect know each other.
Customers told J.D. Miles they heard gunshots and ran out.
“I saw people running from upstairs. There were gunshots or loud sounds. I ran off and just went to go hide,” said a customer who had been ice skating at the time.
