The police report said shots were fired at 5:57 pm.  

A police officer wrote in a police report, “I was advised [the suspect] shot approximately three rounds from a handgun at [victim 1] and [victim 2], inside the South Plains Mall, placing both victims in fear of imminent bodily injury.”

Victim 1 was described as a man in the police report.  Victim 2 was a woman. 

“[Victim 1] and [victim 2] advised they were not injured by [the suspect],” the police report said.

Police also said, “This appears to be an isolated incident.”
