On Saturday, Sept. 17, shots rang off inside Northpark Mall in Ridgeland, Mississippi, as 16-year-old Za’Lill D’Chelle Patterson attempted to steal from a popcorn store.
As reported by CBS 42, the shooting occurred around 5:20 p.m., when Patterson pulled out a gun after she was caught trying to shoplift from the store by the owner. According to Ridgeland Police Chief Brian Myers, the threatened store owner shot Patterson in the leg in self-defense.
Inside the mall, the gunshots caused major panic. In one documented moment, a father and his son were spending time together, enjoying the day while the child was trying on his first pair of Jordans. The father was recording their moment when suddenly the shots were fired. The duo ran inside a nearby store for safety. Thankfully they were not hurt.
As reported by WJTV, shoppers inside the mall, consisting of parents with their children and elderly people, immediately made a dash for it, in fear for their lives.
The owner of the store was not charged with anything.
