Initial reports indicated that one person was killed in the attack. Those reports appear to have been incorrect. The shooting erupted outside of a laundromat beside the Subway. Witnesses saw two men talking before one man opened fire on the other, reports The Press Enterprise. One person, Renae Jones, said “I heard six gunshots.” She added that she saw a man with two bullet wounds lying flat on his stomach. She added:
His brother was standing over him (on a cellphone) calling their mother, I’m just devastated to see a man laying there with bullet wounds. I just prayed for him.
The gunman fled from the scene through the mall’s parking lot. As he ran he shot four more bullets in the direction of the victim.
