A gunman opened fire in a popular Pennsylvania shopping mall in Lancaster on Sunday, wounding four people and causing mass panic among shoppers including one woman who caught it on video while screaming “Oh my God!” repeatedly.
Four people suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and two others were injured trying to flee the scene of the shooting. The incident occurred at Park City Center Mall.
In the video, a group is seen running away as two men fought while gunshots went off. The original clip was captioned “so someone got shot at park city mall…”
“One of the subjects was armed with a handgun and during the incident, multiple gunshots were fired,” the Lancaster Bureau of Police stated.

The fight started between “several males” near a JC Penney around 2:25 p.m.
“One of the subjects was armed with a handgun and during the incident, multiple gunshots were fired,” the Lancaster Bureau of Police said.
Police were able to quickly gain control of the scene, saying about 40 minutes after the shooting began that “there is no immediate threat or danger to the public.”
Park City Center’s 154 stores are located in Lancaster, a south central Pennsylvania city with a population of about 60,000 people.
A notice on the mall’s website said that it would be closed for the rest of Sunday, but is due to reopen at 10:00 a.m. on Monday.
