Three people were killed Sunday at a shopping center in Greenwood, Ind., in a shooting that ended when a gunman shot and killed the gunman, city authorities said.

Two other people were hospitalized in the shooting, which began around 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time when a man carrying a rifle and several ammunition magazines entered the mall’s food court and began firing, police chief Jim Ison said. greenwood. Authorities have not stated a motive for the shooting and have not identified the shooter.

The injured were a 12-year-old girl with a very minor wound to her back and another person who was in stable condition, Chief Ison said.

Mayor Mark Myers said late Sunday that the public faced no further threat and police had the situation under control. He asked the public to stay away.

“I’ve been a police officer for most of my life,” he said in an interview. “Yet this is incredibly shocking, not just for me, but for our entire community.”

Hours after the mall shooting, four people were shot dead, one of them fatally, in a separate shooting at a vigil in a park in Beech Grove, Ind., about nine miles north of Greenwood.

Speaking to the Greenwood shooting at a news conference on Sunday, Chief Ison said the local emergency center began receiving calls about the shooting around 6 p.m. . “It appears that a Good Samaritan who was armed saw the shooting and shot the gunman,” he said.

Mr. Ison only identified the passerby as a 22-year-old man from Bartholomew County, about 35 miles south of the mall, adding that he was legally carrying a handgun. In a statement, Mr Myers praised the man’s actions.

“Someone we call the ‘Good Samaritan’ was able to shoot the attacker and stop further bloodshed,” said Mr. myers. “I am grateful for his swift action and heroism in this situation.”

Chief Ison had said investigators and other personnel would not cover the crime scene at the mall until a state bomb squad could determine whether a “suspicious” backpack left in a mall bathroom was dangerous. Late Sunday, he said investigators had found no explosive and had cleared the backpack.

Police said on Facebook they were looking for witnesses to the shooting, which took place about 15 miles south of Indianapolis.

The Metropolitan Police Department of Indianapolis said on Twitter that it helped the local authorities.

The shooting in Beech Grove, a town of about 15,000 residents southeast of Indianapolis, was reported around 9:30 p.m. Dutch time. One person was killed and three were in stable condition as of Monday morning, authorities said.

This shooting, during a vigil in Don Challis Park, was the target, Beech Grove Mayor Dennis Buckley said at a news conference Monday morning. Some Beech Grove emergency services were in Greenwood at the time for the mall shooting, officials said.

“We’re a good city,” Mr Buckley said. “But sometimes evil finds us, so we have to regroup and move on.”
