2 outdoor shopping mall in the suburb of Salt Lake City

MURRAY, Utah (AP) – Two people were injured in a shooting just outside a popular Sunday district in Utah, where hundreds of fearful customers landed until the police arrived to evacuate the building.

Two people from the beginning of 20 were shot at about 13:30. near the southeast entrance to the Fashion Place shopping center in Murray, a suburb south of Salt Lake City, Murray Police Officer Kenny Bass said. The man was in a critical condition while the woman was serious. Both were treated in a hospital.

The police were looking for three people suspected of the shooting, Bass said. He said the shooting is gang-related.

Shoppers were escorted by the police from the mall with their hands in the air. The shopping center is a busy shopping center in the heart of the Salt Lake City subway station with stores such as Crate and Barrel, Macy & # 39; s and Nordstrom.

Bass says no other victims or suspects have been found in the shopping center.

Krathouder and Barrel employee Danielle Calacino told The Associated Press that they saw people running out of the mall after an alarm. She said that 10 to 12 employees and about 20 customers were hiding in the warehouse room on the upper floor. She said the police escorted them after about 40 minutes.

"We were usually all silent and in shock," says Calacino, a 21-year-old student at the University of Utah.

She said she learned that there was a shooting with a message on the intercom. Everyone immediately picked up their phone, she said, to learn what was going on. Friends begged to ask if she was okay. Some people were crying.
