1 Person in Critical Condition after Gunshot at Jefferson Mall, Louisville

1 Person in Critical Condition after Gunshot at Jefferson Mall, Louisville: According to Louisville Metro Police, a male youngster who was shot near Jefferson Mall on Monday night is in critical condition. Around 4:45 pm, news of the shooting at the Okolona mall on Outer Loop was received. The scene was safe, according to LMPD, as of 5:25 pm.

According to LMPD Lt. Col. Steve Healey, an altercation between two acquaintances began inside the mall. A male suspect fired several bullets at the victim, a young man in his late teens, outside the mall.

As far as we are aware at this time, no one else was injured, Healey added. “To precisely count the number of participants, we’re still watching the video from that incident. We are aware there is only one shooter and one victim.”

In critical condition, the victim was transferred to University Hospital. After the shooting, customers sought refuge in stores while LMPD’s SWAT squad evacuated the shopping center. For those who were in the mall, Healey said there would be a “central collection point” next to the food court.

Healey stated, “As they interview and make sure everyone is okay, they will filter them out. “Once we have cleared each store, we’ll make sure everyone who is inside the mall may filter out,” said the security guard.

By seven o’clock, LMPD had left the mall. According to Loren Yates, a friend of hers who was at the mall at the time of the shooting was there with her 7-year-old kid. After the shooting, Yates’ buddy called her. Yates stated, “She indicated that they simply started shooting, she heard bullets, and they got up and left.” “I guess it’s a shocker, being so close to home,”

The shooting suspect, who is still at large, is being sought by LMPD. Even hours after the incident, police didn’t think the culprit was in the shopping center. The public is asked to stay away from the area as the investigation goes on Monday night, according to LMPD.

Healey remarked that the degree of gun violence in this metropolis was unpredictable and intolerable. People want to pick up guns and decide to shoot them at a mall during the holidays when we’re there, and it’s the Christmas season.
