No victim found in shooting at Mall of America

At a press conference, Bloomington Police Department Chief Booker Hodges stated that it “doesn’t appear like anyone was hurt” at this time. No suspect has been detained, and there have been no reported injuries. He claimed that the store was “packed of people.”




After seeing the footage, Hodges stated, “we saw two groups get into some sort of fight at the cash checkout in the Nike shop.” “After the argument, one of the groups withdrew, but instead of going their separate ways, they chose to act in a way that showed they had no regard for human life. They made the decision to open fire in a crowded store with many rounds.”

According to Hodges, the suspects, who are characterized as young people, ran away from the area. According to the first information, just one individual is believed to have fired the three shots.




He said, “Please turn yourself in.” He said, “But if you decide not to, our officers, partners, and detectives won’t stop until we jail you up.

According to Hodges, police believe that this was an isolated event and that there is no immediate threat to the public.
