At least one person is dead after a shooting on Black Friday at Sacramento’s Arden Fair Mall.

The popular mall was evacuated around 6 p.m. after shots rang out.

“SPD officers are on scene of a shooting that occurred at Arden Fair Mall,” the Sacramento Police Department tweeted at 6:47 p.m. “Two shooting victims have been located and the suspect has fled the area.  There is no active threat at this time. Police will remain in the area as the investigation continues.”

The Sacramento Fire Department told KCRA one person died and another has life-threatening injuries. A KCRA reporter on the scene for Black Friday coverage saw people running out of the mall shortly after 6 p.m.
