One dead following shooting at Alabama mall

Authorities at the scene

The incident happened Thursday night at Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover, which had been scheduled to stay open until midnight ahead of Black Friday sales, NBC reports.

The shooting occurred following a fight between an 18-year-old and the 21-year-old shooter according to police.

A 12-year-old girl described by police as a bystander also was shot once, but it's unclear by whom, Rector said.

"Oh, they shooting in this house", a woman screams as the shots ring out.

The shooting took place inside the Galleria between Foot Action and J.C. Penny at about 10 p.m. with the mall full of shoppers getting an early start on Black Friday. Her condition was not immediately known.

The shooter was confirmed dead by the Hoover Police Department, with Hoover Police Capt. Gregg Rector confirming that two were injured despite previous reports of four individuals being hurt. The two injured people have been hospitalized.

Police tell that the suspect is dead following an officer-involved shooting.

"We were fortunate that that Hoover officer was there where he needed to be, and we believe at this point that maybe he prevented further injuries", Rector said.

Brookfield Properties Spokeswoman Lindsay Kahn tells ABC's WNEP News, "We are working closely with the Hoover Police Department and are grateful for their swift action to contain the situation".

The city followed up with a tweet at 12:09 thank the police officers and paramedics who responded to the scene, saying, "Our HPD officers acted heroically and professionally tonight. While there is no current danger to our community, we will remain closed until further notice".
