Black Friday shooting: 2 shot inside North Carolina mall

Two men have been hospitalized after being shot inside a North Carolina mall on Black Friday.

WITN reports the two males were shot near the American Eagle store inside the Greenville Mall around 6:30 p.m. Friday, according to Greenville Police. Both suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The mall, located in Greenville, N.C., near East Carolina University, was evacuated as police investigate the shooting.

WRAL reports police do not believe the shooting was a random act, as the scene suggested a dispute led to the violence. Police have not said if there is more than one suspect, but were working to review security camera footage.

There is no ongoing threat, police said.

Black Friday, one of the busiest shopping days of the year, is sometimes marred by violence.

The Associated Press reports one person was shot inside a Walmart store in Lumberton, N.C., on Friday morning in an “isolated incident” between two individuals who knew each other, police said. Lumberton is located 130 miles southwest of Greenville.

Also Friday, customers reportedly shot out the tires of a getaway vehicle when two men allegedly tried to steal merchandise from a Tractor Supply in Theodore, Alabama. No injuries were reported. Both suspects have been charged with felony theft in the 3rd degree.

In 2019, a shooting at Destiny USA sent Black Friday shoppers into a panic and forced the Syracuse mall to close early. Kyree Truax, who opened fire near the food court when he was being kicked by another man, was sentenced to seven years in prison after a grand jury found he legitimately acted in self-defense but had no right to possess the loaded gun in the first place.
