Shooting at California Shopping Mall

A shooting at a San Bruno shopping mall that forced the evacuation of hundreds and injured four, including two teens with gunshot wounds, was not a random act of violence, authorities said Wednesday.

Two groups of people got into a dispute just before 4 p.m. Tuesday on the second floor of the Shops at Tanforan, where a person from each group began shooting at each other with handguns, San Bruno police said in a statement.

Both victims with gunshot wounds were male teenagers, one of whom was shot in the abdomen, police said. The other victim sustained a gunshot wound to the leg, while two others were injured in the aftermath but declined to be taken to the hospital.

“The victims are believed to be associated with the groups engaged in the dispute that preceded the shooting,” police said.
