A second person has died after a Black Friday mall shooting in California.
One victim, a 19-year-old man, died at the Arden Fair Mall and another man, who was 17, was taken to a local hospital where he died, the Sacramento Police Department said Saturday.
Police said they were called to the shopping center at 6:11 p.m. Friday after getting a report of shots fired. The shootings were believed to be an isolated incident and police said they were looking for a suspect who was in his 20s.
The victims have not been identified.
“We are deeply concerned by the increase in gun violence in Sacramento and other cities during the pandemic, and have supported increasing our efforts to reach young people at risk,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg tweeted Friday night. “A gun is never the answer.”
