Killeen Mall shooting – Cops hunt masked suspect after gunfire forces shoppers to shelter and injures one

COPS are hunting for a masked suspect after a mall shooting in Texas left one person injured and shoppers sheltering for safety.

The Killeen Mall was put into lockdown on Tuesday evening as officers scoured the center.


A male victim was found in the mall’s Finish Lane store with gunshots in the torso and leg, according to The Killeen Daily Herald.

He was taken to hospital in Temple, Texas, and the extent of his injuries remains unknown.

Police are still searching for the suspect who was wearing a white beanie, white mask, and black hoodie.

The situation was described as “fluid” as cops said it's currently unclear if the shooting was random or targeted.

The Killeen Police Department confirmed that they had cleared the area, but no arrests have been made.

Cops said there was a “lot of chaos” in the mall as police issued a shelter-in-place order.

A witness said they heard six shots ring inside the mall, according to 25 News.

Killeen Police Chief Charles Kimble told reporters last night: “Our first priority is to safely get everyone out of the mall, tend to any injuries, search the mall for any possible additional shooters, and then we will systematically start the investigation.

Officers said they are reviewing witness statements, the mall's security footage, and video that may have been captured.
