Police have arrested three suspects, including a 22-year-old male, in connection with a shooting at a busy mall in South Carolina, USA, on Saturday that left 12 people injured.

Ten people suffered gunshot wounds after multiple rounds were fired at the mall, including two who were considered in critical but stable condition.

An additional two people were injured in a stampede, police officials said.

Reportedly, the people who suffered gunshot wounds are from the age group between 15 years old and 73 years old.

Authorities said no fatalities have been reported but that eight of the victims were taken to the hospital. Of those eight, two were in critical condition and six were in stable condition.

Heavy police presence continued in the area hours after the shooting, though officers began letting more traffic through the streets surrounding the shopping centers and strip malls that are usually packed on weekends.

Mall officials issued a statement that was posted by Columbia police on Twitter that said: “Today’s isolated, senseless act of violence is extremely upsetting, and our thoughts are with everyone impacted. We are grateful for the quick response and continued support of our security team and our partners in law enforcement.”
