Fresno, California 2021-10-25 19:37:10 –

Police said the suspect was detained after two people were killed and four were injured in a shooting at a shopping mall in Boise, Idaho.

At a press conference, officials said police had a shootout with the suspect. Most of the mall was cleared, but police were still looking for additional victims.

Police did not release any other information, saying the investigation was underway.

Police are asking people to avoid the area. Police also said they were informing the families of the people involved.

Boise Town Square Shopping Mall is located in Idaho’s largest city and is the largest mall in the city.

Police interviewed dozens of people outside the entrance to Macy’s, one of the five major department stores in the mall, which has a total of 153 stores.

Police are also investigating what appears to be another crime scene at a restaurant near the mall.

Boise’s Cheri Gypin was in the mall with a friend and walked three or four times a week for an hour. She said she heard some big bangs, but thought something had fallen off the ceiling. Then about 60 people, including the family pushing the stroller, rushed to them and some shouted that there were active archers.

“My friend was trying to handle it. I just looked at her and said,’We have to run.’ So we just ran and on the perimeter of the parking lot I kept running until I got there. “

They returned to the car, where police told a crowd of people fleeing the mall to leave the parking lot.
