GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Police in New York say one person has been shot at a Rolex dealer inside a Long Island mall and another person is in custody.
Acting Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter says the shooting occurred Tuesday afternoon at the Roosevelt Field Mall. He says the victim has been taken to a hospital in serious condition. Krumpter says one shot was fired.
Crowds of holiday shoppers were in the mall at the time. Jessica Julig of Queens says she was shopping when employees suddenly told her to stay down. She says she heard people screaming, then “started to feel the whole mall shake.”
She says people were running everywhere. Mall workers took her and others to a service entrance to leave the mall.
