Reportedly the shooter, which matches a description aired by police, and appears to match the video we posted.

We have secured the scene at the Mall of America and can confirm that shots were fired. This is an isolated incident. The suspect fled the MOA on foot and officers are in the process of interviewing witnesses. At this time we have not located a victim.

I understand Laura Ingraham has reported this week from Minneapolis, where people told her the increasing lawlessness is frightening and dangerous. One woman said she won't dare go to Mall of America anymore because of the crime there - and no cops to do anything about it.

Police: No victim found in shooting at Mall of America
By TRISHA AHMED3 minutes ago

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Someone opened fire Thursday at the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis, sending shoppers running for cover, but police said they had not yet found a victim.

Bloomington police also said they were still searching for a suspect after securing the scene.

Video posted to social media showed what appeared to be a man shouting as he walked near the complex’s Nike store, with at least three apparent gunshots.

The mall, which opened in 1992, is the largest in the U.S. and is a tourist destination and community gathering spot.

Video posted online showed shoppers fleeing from the amusement park on the giant mall’s ground level, holding their children’s hands and clutching their bags. Still other video showed a pair of police officers, including one with a rifle, moving through the mall, and people walking quickly away from the mall’s large interior atrium area.

Trent Turner, a salesman at a DSW shoe store one level below the Nike store, said he was near the back when he heard shots. “Then I saw everyone stampeding toward the back,” he said.

One woman tweeted that she was shopping for clothes for high school senior pictures with her 17-year-old daughter when the store manager told them to “move as far back as possible.” The woman said she was in a fitting room with her daughter. Another person posted video of dozens of people said to be gathered in the basement as warnings to “please shelter immediately” repeated over mall speakers.

The Mall of America has become a famous hotbed of BLM violence.  I would not be caught dead there.

Thinking the same thing. Who the Hell would dare go to a mall these days? Get mugged in the parking lot and shot inside. Screw that!

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

Malls have a finite lifespan.  Usually they thrive for 20 to 30 years.  How they die is not surprising.  That's the signpost up ahead-your next stop, is the Shit Zone.

They are dead in two years if a light rail stop is built in front.

The are building a mall in Miami, not technically the normal mall.  Miami is still the last place I'd go in FL.

The largest mall in the US — called the American Dream — is officially coming to Miami, Florida.

Spanning 6 million square feet, the $4 billion retail and entertainment complex will be about twice the size of the nation's current largest mall, the King of Prussia Mall in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

The American Dream Miami's developers, Triple Five Group, are also behind the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota, according to The Miami Herald

Yup

In atlanta back in the day MARTA (Moving Africans Rapidly Thu Atlanta) extended the lines north for commuters to go to work downtown.  When the workers were away the crooks could play.

Back in the 80's I had several accounts in Liberty City.  They all told me to come before 11 am. They thugs were just waking up at noon.   That Mall is an invitation for crime.   I hope they don't build it.

Crime has gotten so bad in the TCs my liberal stepdaughter and her husband refuse to go there anymore. They used to visit downtown Minny often. He used to work there until Covid. His boss his forcing him to work downtown again after two years of working at home.
So many regular Minny cops have quit or retired that the gov. has been forced to send more HP cops to work the city. Not only have homicides spiked in the last two years, street racing and other shenanigans have spiked from the feral lawless who have taken over.
The mayor of Minny is useless as is the governor both held hostage to far left elements.

It's a shame that crime has skyrocketed in many cities across the country.  Most of this could have been avoided.

Funny how the thugs never steal work boots when they pillage and loot.  Not much of a market for those such things among their cliental

@libertybele No it is not, what it is, is Karmic justice. These hell holes have been liberal enclaves for far to long. Elections have consequences. They are paying the price for their arrogance and greed.

Only by voting in conservatives. Time will tell if they have learned their lessons.

It'll never happen.  The majority of the urban voters have the same Looter Mentality as the ones we see videos of cleaning out stores.
