Earlier we posted about a shooting that occurred at Cumberland Mall in Atlanta. Now a few updates to the incident have been provided.

According to WSBTV, police have confirmed that there was a shooting inside of the mall. A Cobb County spokesperson said that the shooting occurred following an argument inside the food court.

Authorities were not able to confirm what the argument was about, but there were two people that were involved. One person was shot and transported to the hospital for treatment, the person’s condition is unknown at the moment. Police say they are searching for a man that has left the scene, however, the man’s description has not been released at the moment.

Police have performed a security sweep inside the mall, and they do not believe that the man is still inside the mall. Officer Sarah O’Hara said, “We are working hand in hand with the mall right now and our search teams have pulled out.”

The police presence is still heavy at the mall, however, a Cobb police spokeswoman said that the mall could reopen today, but the food court will remain closed.

Shortly after police arrived at the scene they were able to determine that this wasn’t an active shooter situation, and it was an isolated incident since it involved two people.
