At least one person is dead and six others injured Saturday evening after a gun battle erupted at Muskogee's Arrowhead Mall.
Police received the shooting call at 4:11 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Local officers and Muskogee County Sheriff's deputies immediately responded to the mall, located in downtown Muskogee.
Officers tell 2News that the initial gunshots were fired near the mall's stage area. The gun battle then moved westward, ending near an art gallery.
The rampage claimed the life of 17-year-old Jerrod Reed.
Detectives are investigating what they believe was a targeted killing and an incident of gang-related violence. They are looking for three suspects connected to the shooting and hope mall surveillance footage will help identify those responsible.
A Muskogee EMS spokesperson tells 2News that six other people suffered gunshot wounds.
Two victims were transported with life-threatening injuries, including a 13-year-old girl life-flighted to St. Francis. - cnn
