Police said the victim was shot in the abdomen in the parking lot outside of the Macy’s Men’s store.

Macy’s released a statement saying, “We are deeply saddened about the incident that took place at Macy’s Pavilions at Buckland Hills. The safety of our customers and our colleagues is Macy’s top priority. We are working closely with the local police department on this investigation and defer all comments about the case to them per policy.”

“An employee came over to us and she’s like, ‘we’re shutting the gate for this store, so we have to go into lockdown.’ We followed her and everyone was in the store. We went into the back rooms and we were kind of sitting there for a half an hour, 45 minutes waiting and there were 30 people everywhere in the store,” said Marisa Resnick, a shopper.

No additional information was released at this time.
