Three people were shot and three more injured in a shooting on Black Friday at a mall in Durham, North Carolina. Of course there were a lot of people in the mall with their phones out and much of it unfolded in real time online.
There are videos of people running and other videos showing people hiding or waiting during the long shelter-in-place order.
Police said it was basically two groups who “knew each other” that were doing the shooting. The ten-year-old was hit by a ricochet bullet and is not facing life-threatening injuries. At the time of this post the remaining two gunshot victims status is unknown.
