A gunman opened fire late Sunday afternoon at a mall in Indiana. There are injured and dead. It is unclear whether the perpetrator is still alive.
Shots were fired in a shopping mall in Greenwood, Indiana, killing at least two people. "I don't know if the shooter died or not, but we are not looking for anyone at this time and there is no ongoing threat to public safety," a police official said on Sunday evening (local time). Several people were treated for injuries in the hospital.
The incident happened late Sunday afternoon at a shopping center in the town of Greenwood. The background is still unclear. Local media had reported that the shooter was among the fatalities. "We are shocked by another incident of this kind in our country, in our city," said the police representative.
Fatal incidents involving firearms continue to occur in the United States. Just two weeks ago, a 21-year-old man opened fire at an Independence Day parade in a Chicago suburb, killing seven people. In the USA there is a debate about stricter gun laws - in many states the regulations are very lax.
