Shooting at Independence Center Mall

A shooting reportedly occurred at the Independence Center shopping mall at 39th Street and M-291 in southeastern Independence around 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Shoppers in the mall reportedly went into a panic and started running for exits.

The mall was "locked-down" after the shooting which reportedly occurred inside the mall near the Sears store and the food court.

Independence Police tells news partner KSHB-41 that "two" people were shot.

Police said later Saturday evening that the two shot were "a male and a female" and that their medical conditions were "not life threatening."

Police were seeking at least one suspect-  police reported having "two people in custody-" but some witnesses told KSHB that there may have been as many as "four" people involved.

If you were at Independence Center when the shootings occurred- your observations and/or comments are welcome!
