(Trends Wide) — The Columbia Police Department is investigating a Saturday afternoon shooting at the Columbiana Center Mall on Saturday afternoon.
There are at least 12 people injured in the shooting and no deaths, Columbia Police Department Chief William H. “Skip” Holbrook said.
“We have three people in custody,” Holbrook said.
Of those injured, 10 received gunshot wounds, eight were transported for treatment and two went on their own to receive medical attention, according to Holbrook.
Holbrook gave an update on the conditions of some of the people injured in the incident, saying two of the shooting victims are in critical but stable condition, and six are in stable condition.
Two people were injured with non-gunshot-related injuries in what Holbrook described as a “stampede” after the incident.
Police learned of the shooting after receiving a call about shots fired at the mall near the Gap store, Holbrook said.
“We ask that the public stay out of the area,” Holbrook said.
