SHOOTING SCENE: Police tape posted around Park Plaza today.
  • SHOOTING SCENE: Police tape posted around Park Plaza today.

Channel 7's Angela Rachels Twitters a report of a shooting in the lower level of the Park Plaza parking deck.

UPDATE: Channel 4 describes the event as a police "officer involved shooting." A person was shot — not an officer — and taken from the parking deck by ambulance, the station reports.

Fox 16 describes the shooting victim as a "suspect" and says two other "suspects" are also in custody. Its early report says mall security cameras might have footage of the event.

Channel 7's Rachels Twitters more details: "Off-duty officer felt threatened by car coming towards him in deck. Officer opened fire on car: 3 people inside car: 2 people fled, 1 person shot. Everyone in custody."

Channel 11 says the officer was working as private mall security. He approached a vehicle "for an unknown reason," felt threatened and fired, striking one of three occupants. Two fled, but were captured after running across University Avenue.

The condition of the wounded suspect isn't known, but unofficial reports indicate the wound was serious.
