A Chesterfield Police Spokesman said five shots were fired in the atrium of the mall, outside of the stores.

According to the probable cause statement, 32-year-old Kerri Weir, of Ballwin, and another suspect approached a victim to collect a debt owed to Weir.

The other suspect told the victim, "You're not going to your next appointment, you're coming with us," and grabbed him by the shirt.

The victim said he was in fear of his life and was able to escape by firing multiple shots from his handgun into the air.
