1 wounded in Las Vegas shopping mall shooting

The Associated PressJuly 15, 2014 

— Police are looking for a gunman after one person was shot in the shoulder at a Las Vegas mall.

Lt. Mark Reddon told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/1t15703 ) the Tuesday evening shooting stemmed from a fight at the food court in the Fashion Show Mall, which is known for its high-end stores.

Police say the victim ran down the escalator and onto Las Vegas Boulevard, and two suspects may have fled in a blue Dodge.

Reddon told the Review-Journal that the shooting may be gang-related.

Reddon said the shooting, reported at 6 p.m., forced stores in the mall to close early.

Las Vegas-based artist David Fleming, who says he was 40 feet away from the shooting, said his heart raced after he heard a loud shot and saw hundreds of people running toward him.
