Three people were shot during an attempted robbery at a shopping mall Saturday, police said. One person was critically wounded.

Authorities were still piecing together what happened, but said that the shootings happened around 5:15 p.m. in a store at Greenbriar Mall. One of the injured people was a security guard, police said.

The suspects, three young men, got away in a sport utility vehicle, police said.

All three of the injured were taken to a hospital, where two people were listed in stable condition, police said.

Police spokesman Steve Coleman said the northeast corner of the mall was closed after the incident, but Macy’s, one of the largest stores in the mall, stayed open until closing time at 9 p.m.
