Man in Critical Condition after Shooting Outside Eastdale Mall
A man is in critical condition and is undergoing surgery at Baptist Medical Center South after he was shot outside Eastdale Mall in Montgomery this afternoon.
Montgomery police say several shots were fired near the rear entrance to Sears sometime after 3 o'clock.
Police told CBS 8 News on the scene that two suspects did attempt to flee. They say it was unarmed mall security who actually pursued the suspects. Not too long afterward, in a joint effort between police and security, two suspects were placed under arrest.
We were able to talk to the mall manager who tells us he doesn't believe the suspects were mall customers but instead were here targeting a specific person. police were able to confirm that.
Police haven't yet released the suspects' names or said what type of charges they will face.
