He says the two men had an altercation with the victims while going through a doorway. He says the shooting happened when the two pairs met up later.

Gentry says the victims' injuries are not life-threatening. He says "everything is secure" at the mall and "no one else is in a position to be harmed."

Police are interviewing at least a dozen witnesses.
