GREENWOOD, Ind. (AP) – Three people were shot dead Sunday night and two were injured in an Indiana mall after a gunman opened fire in a food court and shot him dead by an armed civilian, police said.

The man entered the Greenwood Park Mall with a rifle and several ammunition magazines and began firing in the food court, said Jim Ison, chief of police for Greenwood.

A 22-year-old from nearby Bartholomew County, who was legally carrying a firearm at the mall, shot and killed the gunman, Ison said at a news conference.

Four of those hit by gunfire were women and one was a man, Ison said. He did not immediately know the specific sex or age of the dead.

He said a 12-year-old girl was one of the two injured, both of whom are in stable condition.

Police seized a suspicious backpack that was in a bathroom near the food court, Ison said.

Officers went to the mall around 6 p.m. for reports of the shooting.

“The real hero of the day is the citizen who legally had a firearm with them in that food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he started,” Ison said.

The mass shooting was just the last to shake Americans in 2022. Schools, churches, supermarkets and a parade on the 4th of July in Highland Park, Illinois, have all become murder zones in recent months. Yet the reality of America’s staggering murder rate can often be seen more clearly in individual deaths that rarely make the news.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police 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 threat to the area Sunday night, authorities said.

Greenwood is a southern suburb of Indianapolis with approximately 60,000 residents. Mayor Mark Myers asked for “prayers for the victims and our first responders”.

“This tragedy touches the core of our community,” Myers said in a statement.

Authorities said they would provide more details on Monday.
