One killed, several injured in shooting at Oklahoma mall

One teenager died and several people were injured after gunfire broke out inside an Oklahoma shopping mall Saturday, the Associated Press reported.
Five people were taken to a hospital and police sectioned off Arrowhead Mall in downtown Muskogee. The area was particularly busy with people attending the annual Azalea Festival in the city.
It is not known whether the person killed, Jarrod Reed, 17, of Muskogee, was a bystander or one of the several people involved in the shooting, police said. The conditions or identities of the other victims have not been released.
Three people were being sought for questioning as of late Saturday.
Shoppers were told to leave the mall quickly around 4:15 p.m. through an announcement, and several witnesses said they had heard several gunshots inside the mall. Witnesses said people began screaming and a group of men began shooting.
Witnesses told police they thought it was a gunfight, police said. Gunfire was reported in other areas of the city after the mall shooting, but it had not been confirmed, the New York Times said.
