Three people were fatally shot and two injured in an Indiana mall after a man with a rifle opened fire in a food court and an armed civilian shot him, police said.

The man entered the Greenwood Park Mall with a rifle and several ammunition magazines and began shooting in the food court Sunday night, Greenwood Police Chief Jim Ison said.

An armed bystander killed the man, Ison said. A total of four people were killed.

“The real hero of the day is the citizen who legally carried a firearm in that food court and was able to stop the gunman almost as soon as he started,” Ison told reporters. He described the armed bystander as a 22-year-old man.

Officers went to the mall around 6 p.m. due to reports of the shooting. Authorities searched the mall for other victims, but they believed the shooting was confined to the food court, Ison said.

Police had seized a suspicious backpack that was in a bathroom near the food court, he told a news conference.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and several other agencies are assisting in the investigation.

“We are sick of yet another incident like this in our country,” said Indianapolis Assistant Chief of Police Chris Bailey. There was no active threat to the area, he said.

Greenwood is a southern suburb of Indianapolis with approximately 60,000 residents.

The mayor, Mark Myers, asked for “prayers for the victims and our first responders,” saying in a statement, “This tragedy touches the core of our community.”
