2 shots fired at Manassas Mall – NBC4 Washington

Two people were injured in a shooting at the Manassas Mall on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Two groups of people got into a fight in the parking lot when shots were fired, police said.

One person was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the lower body and notified police of the shooting.

Police found another victim with a minor injury believed to have been caused by a ricochet, police said.

Both victims will survive, police said.

Customers in the food court reported hearing gunshots before seeing people running.

“All of a sudden everyone was running out of the food court screaming, and then we heard five gunshots,” said Doris Morales, who was at the mall with her two daughters. “And then I just pushed my girls into Victoria’s Secret.”

One customer said he did not hear the shots, but told News4 he was inside a store when the gates lowered and customers were told to move to the back and take cover.

Prince William County police said they had detained a group of people for questioning but did not know if the shooter or shooters were among them.
