CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) -- An 18-year-old student is behind bars, charged with shooting and injuring two women at a mall branch of a southwestern Virginia community college.

Christiansburg Police Chief Mark Sisson said Friday evening that Neil MacInnis of Christiansburg was charged with two counts each of malicious wounding and using a firearm in the commission of a felony. He was being held without bond at the Montgomery County Jail.

Authorities are still trying to establish a motive and any connection between MacInnis and the victims.

Sisson says MacInnis was subdued at New River Valley Mall minutes after he entered the satellite campus of New River Community College around 2 p.m. Friday.

One of the victims was airlifted to the hospital and the other was taken by ambulance. Officials did not provide any update on their conditions.
