FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne Police Department detectives have spoken with two persons of interest connected to a shooting Saturday afternoon inside Glenbrook Square Mall, according to an FWPD spokesman.
As of Monday afternoon, no arrest had been made, according to FWPD.
The shopping mall was evacuated and closed Saturday, but reopened Sunday.
The initial calls to 911 were made just before 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Callers heard three to four shots and were telling dispatchers that one person may have been shot.
Police said they did locate one victim who was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. That man is now stable.
Callers told police that the shooter was seen running out of the Barnes & Noble entrance before officers arrived.
In a press briefing, an FWPD spokesman said the suspect turned himself in. He later clarified that the man called 911 requesting to turn himself in and speak with detectives, but he had yet to make contact with police at that point.
Police confirmed to WANE 15 Sunday that detectives have now spoken with both persons of interest in the case. Because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, they said no further updates will be provided until later in the week.
According to the Fort Wayne Police Department, this was not a random incident where a shooter came into the mall randomly firing. Police believe some sort of altercation between the two parties led to the shots being fired.
WANE 15 spoke to a witness who was in the food court at the time of the incident.
They said they heard what they thought was a gunshot, but there was confusion if it was just a loud bang. They added that panic then ensued and people started running out of the mall.
An officer helped that witness and her husband out of the mall at the nearest exit.
WANE 15 will update this story when new information becomes available.
