NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A man who was wounded after a dispute led to gunfire Thursday at Opry Mills Mall in Nashville has died, police say. Metro Nashville police said the shooting was apparently the result of an ongoing dispute between two males.
CBS affiliate WTVF reports the shooting happened just before 2:30 p.m. in a hallway outside an Auntie Anne's pretzel store.
The 22-year-old victim who was shot was taken to Skyline Medical Center in critical condition, where he later died, the station reports. The suspected gunman, also 22, ran from the
mall to a ticketing booth outside, placed his gun on the counter and told the people inside to call 911, the station reports.
Police spokesman Don Aaron did not immediately release the name of the shooting victim or suspect. The police official, briefing journalists at Opry Mill Mall, said the suspect told the ticket taker he wanted no further trouble after putting down his gun.
Aaron said a retired California police officer who was visiting Nashville stepped in and ordered the man to lie on the ground. The suspect was then taken into custody.
