Texas Mall Shooting: 9 Dead Including Gunman, 7 Others Hospitalized

Nine people died and seven others were injured on Saturday after a gunman opened fire at an outdoor mall north of Dallas, Texas, officials said.

The alleged gunman, who died after a confrontation with police, was among the seven people who were killed at the Allen Premium Outlets, the scene of the shooting, Allen Police Department officials said.

According to ABC News, nine additional people were transferred to hospitals, where two later died, officials said. The hospitalized victims ages range from 5 to 61 years old, authorities said.

Multiple law enforcement agencies responded at about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday to the outlets in the Dallas suburb, where an active shooter incident had been reported.

“This is a tragedy. People will be looking for answers,” Allen Police Chief Brian Harvey said during a press briefing. “We’re sorry that those families are experiencing that loss.”

An officer who was at the outlet mall on an unrelated call responded to the shooting around 3:36 p.m., Harvey said.

“He heard gunshots, went to the gunshots engaged the suspect and neutralized the suspect,” Harvey continued. The police chief said they believed the male shooter acted alone. “We don’t believe that there’s another threat at this time,” Harvey added.
