TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) — A police official says a gunshot was fired Monday evening inside the Westfield Southcenter Mall in Tukwila and one young man suffered a minor hand injury.

Tukwila police Cmdr. Eric Drever says one participant in a fight involving several young men in their late teens pulled out a gun and “fired what we believe was one shot.”

Drever says the teen who was hit was treated at the scene. The spokesman says he understands police detained three young men for questioning.

The shot was fired inside a common area about 50 feet from the mall’s north entrance.

Drever says there was no official lockdown but crime scene tape did temporarily “inhibit some stores’ ability to do business.”
