Man, child shot during an altercation at a mall in Alabama
FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) — Police say two people were shot during an altercation at a mall in central Alabama.
Fairfield Police Chief Leon Davis tells multiple news outlets that a 21-year-old man was shot in the leg and a bullet grazed the neck of a 5-year-old boy outside near the entrance at Western Hills Mall.
Davis says their injuries were not life-threatening, and the child has already been released from the hospital.
Davis says three other people suffered non-life-threatening injuries after being hit by flying debris.
Davis says the suspect fled the scene but may have been hit by the victim’s return fire.
Davis says the 21-year-old victim told police that he and the suspect had an altercation earlier. No arrests have been made.
