The shooting at a shopping center in South Carolina, USA, which injured 12 people, seems to be rooted in a dispute between some individuals.
Police in the city of Columbia, the capital of the state of South Carolina America, said the shooting occurred at a shopping mall on April 16, leaving 10 people injured by bullets and two people being trampled while looking for a place to hide. Two people are in critical but stable condition, the rest are not in danger of life.
Three armed suspects were found in the mall, at least one of which was identified as having opened fire. All three were arrested for investigation.
“This is not a situation where a random gunman opened fire at a mall. The people arrested all knew each other, and the shooting appeared to have been the result of a personal dispute,” Columbia Police Chief William Holbrook said. , but added that the details of the incident are still unclear.
Local media reported that a large number of police and emergency personnel showed up in the business district about 15 km from the city center.
The incident comes just days after a shooting at a subway station in New York left at least 29 people injured. US President Joe Biden last week announced new controls to tighten restrictions on “ghost guns”, weapons that are privately assembled and almost untraceable when used in cases.
