Search for shooter after incident at Va. shopping mall

HENRICO, Va. — Police are looking for a man who fired a gun inside a Henrico County mall and sent dozens of customers fleeing.

Henrico County police tell media outlets that two people were slightly injured in the Monday incident. A 20-year-old man suffered what appeared to be a ricochet wound in a leg. A 74-year-old woman fell as she was fleeing and injured an ankle.

Police say the suspect fired one shot in a hallway outside public restrooms near the food court in the Regency Square mall.

Investigators also are looking for a second man who is believed to have argued with the gunman before the shot was fired.
