1 killed in shooting at NC mall


PINEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Police in a North Carolina town say a person was shot and killed during a dispute at a store inside a mall.

Multiple news outlets report the shooting occurred just after noon Sunday in the DTLR store in Carolina Place Mall in Pineville, a bedroom community of Charlotte, and that a suspect is in custody.

Pineville police didn’t immediately return a phone call Sunday to The Associated Press seeking comment.

Charlotte TV broadcasters cite police as saying the altercation involved an employee and someone entering the shoe and fashion store, and that it appears to be neither a random act nor related to a robbery. Names of the two people haven’t been released.

A portion of the mall was closed Sunday afternoon while police investigated.
