Shoppers evacuated after reports of shots fired at NY mall

Reported gunfire at Hudson Valley Mall leads to evacuation

Two people were injured, and shoppers were evacuated from a bustling mall in Orange County, New York Sunday afternoon, after sources said a customer's firearm accidentally discharged.

Hertman said a male in a dark hooded-sweatshirt and gray trousers discharged one round from a handgun into the floor on the second level of the mall in front of the American Eagle store.

Police say they are still searching for the suspect. At least two people were injured, New York State police were reported as saying.

It was unclear if the shot fired was accidental or intentional, Hertman said.

They are expected to be okay.

The person who fired the shot is not in custody, Hertman said. "Based on eye witnesses and other evidence we've obtained, it appears the individual discharged one round into the floor at the side of his leg. The investigation is still ongoing".

Officials say the mall was evacuated.
