2 Injured in shooting outside central Illinois mall

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Police say two people were injured in a shooting outside of a central Illinois mall.

The News-Gazette in Champaign reports that police Chief R.T. Finney said police went to the mall Sunday afternoon after receiving a report of multiple shots fired.

Finney said that when officers arrived, they found one person shooting at another in the parking lot.

Police spokeswoman Rene Dunn says two officers shot the shooter.

Both of the people who were injured are hospitalized. Finney says one is a suspect and one is a victim. He also says three or four people were taken into custody.

Police say there's nothing to indicate any shots were fired inside the mall.

Police do not have a motive for the shooting.
