Six people were injured and one person is in custody following reports of a shooting at a mall in Boise, the city’s police department said Monday. The department said one of the injured people is a police officer.
Just after 3 p.m. local time, police said they were “responding to reports of shots fired at the mall on N. Milwaukee” and asked residents to avoid the area. CBS affiliate KBOI-TV identified the scene as the Boise Towne Square mall.
Police said they are now in the process of securing the scene, searching the mall store-by-store to clear the shopping center. Police officials are expected to provide an update at 4:30 p.m. local time.
