The shootings at the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham took place on Black Friday, one of the biggest retail sales days of the year.
Local media reported that the mall was evacuated, and video footage showed large numbers of police cars, firetrucks and ambulances outside.
“So, I heard like three, four shots and then I saw people just start, you know, running toward me,” said Richard Turner, who works at the mall.
“Then I grabbed my girl and we just go straight, we just went straight to the emergency exit.” Police said that one person is in custody and that a second fled the scene, according to ABC News.
