    At least 2 dead in Kansas City mall shooting

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Two people were killed and at least two others were wounded in shootings Sunday at a shopping mall in Kansas City, Mo., according to media reports quoting firefighters.

    There were conflicting reports about whether the suspect was among the dead or was in custody.

    A Kansas City police spokeswoman said there had been multiple shootings at the upscale Ward Parkway mall south of downtown Kansas City and the shooter had been wounded. She had no other details.

    Media reports said the suspect shot a police officer in the arm during a traffic check and then drove to the mall where he opened fire with what may have been an AK-47 assault rifle.

    One eyewitness told CNN he heard three or four shots near the checkout aisles of a department store, and his son saw a man on the ground in shock with blood on his face.

    The Kansas City Star said police were notified shortly before 4 p.m. that a man was firing shots in the mall and that several people had been hit.

    "We have at least two fatalities, maybe more," said Joe Vitale, a Kansas City fire department battalion chief.

    Preliminary witness accounts gave conflicting accounts of exactly where the shootings occurred. Television video showed a window shot out at a Starbucks coffee shop but some witnesses said the shooting occurred around a Target store.

    Aaron Washington, 34, a worker at Target, said the shooting appeared to happen near the store's entrance into the into mall.

    He said he was coming back from lunch when he heard gunshots and saw a man holding his eye, apparently wounded in the incident.

    Yesenia Erives, 11, of Kansas City, said she was seeing a movie at a movie theater in the mall when she heard two gunshots.

    "Then a worker from the theaters, he said to go back in the theater because there's a guy who shot some people," she said.

    The theater was evacuated and the mall was shutdown, with the surrounding streets also closed down.

    This breaking story will be updated.
    Reuters and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

    It's a good thing we have all these gun laws to keep people from using illegal guns.

    The fourth is the shooter, and 3 victims. At least that was the last I heard.

    Pretty much all you saw on the 10 oclock news last night.

    How are you going to stop a criminal from using illegal guns?

    Big deal he had a Ak-47, they're legal. If someone in that mall had been armed maybe this could have been stopped sooner.
