Gunman identified in Galleria shooting

He said that the 18-year-old has at least one gunshot wound and "We believe he is in serious condition". Rector said a 12-year-old girl also struck by gunfire was hospitalized. She's in stable condition. His name was not immediately released, but police said he was 21 years old and from Hueytown. "And then they opened the escape-route doors, and we escaped through the escape-route doors".

Two people are injured and a gunman is dead after a shooting at a mall in Alabama Thanksgiving night, authorities said.

The teen was shot twice in the torso and a police officer working security at the mall confronted the gunman as they attempted to run away from the scene.

Lexi Joiner said she was shopping with her mother when the gunfire erupted between J.C. Penney and Foot Action on the mall's second floor.




"It was terrifying, " Joiner said. "While there is no current danger to our community, the shopping center will remain closed until further notice".

Shots rang out at the Riverchase Galleria Mall in Hoover, Alabama, just outside of Birmingham on Thursday night as shoppers flocked for early Black Friday deals after Thanksgiving dinner. The mall was open late for early Black Friday shopping.

A high school senior, who chose to get involved in Black Friday for the first time, described how tires were squealing in the carpark as people tried to flee.

"We believe last we heard that she was alert, conscious, and talking, and that maybe she was going into surgery", said Captain Gregg Rector, the Hoover Public Information Officer, during a press conference following the shooting. We already had multiple officers working at the mall for traffic control and police presence inside, " he said.
