Three people were killed and another two injured on Monday in a shooting that occurred at a mall outside Indianapolis, Indiana. An armed civilian fatally shot the gunman, police have said.
According to Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison, a man entered the Greenwood Park Mall with a rifle and several magazines of ammunition before opening fire at the food court. Police have yet to identify the gunman or establish his motive.
The shooter was eventually stopped by a “good Samaritan,” who Ison described as a 22-year-old man.
“The real hero of the day is the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in that food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began,” the police chief told reporters.
