A person was hurt in a shooting at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree, Massachusetts, Friday, and two people are in custody following a brief manhunt, state police say.

Authorities say two male suspects were taken into custody a short distance from the mall where they had fled on foot, police said. The neighborhoods surrounding the plaza were urged to shelter in place and to report any suspicious activity to police while law enforcement could be seen walking through nearby backyards with guns drawn as they searched for the suspects.

The article goes on to state the following:

Braintree police believe this is a targeted incident of violence, and it was not a random act or an “active shooter” incident.

According to multiple reports, a fight broke out between two groups of people who may know each other, and the situation escalated into a shooting.  A female victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Stores were placed on lockdown and customers were asked to shelter in place as the incident unfolded.

Some customers and family members posted messages on Twitter during the ordeal.

One Twitter user wrote, “my dad was at braintree mall and he saw these two guys yelling at each other and he was about to film but then one of the pulled a gun out and started shooting,, he ran out of there.”

Another person, Wes, tweeted, “Was just shopping in the Braintree / South Shore Mall. Was the strangest thing hearing someone yell “someone’s shooting” and starting instantly to run alongside everyone else. Wtf is going on in this world right now.”

Charles tweeted, “I was at the BrainTree Mall! I saw the situation unfold. It was all over a woman and her new boyfriend, and the father of her child. It was ugly! Guy didn’t want to believe the relationship was over another man was taking his family shopping. He had tears in his eyes b4 shooting.”
