Chief: 3 dead in Indiana mall shooting; witness kills gunman

Shoppers leave the Greenwood Park Mall on May 4, 2020, in Greenwood, Ind. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police say two people were killed in a shooting Sunday, July 17, 2022, at the mall in Greenwood and multiple other people were taken to hospitals with injuries.

GREENWOOD, Ind. — Police say three people were fatally shot and two were injured at an Indiana mall after a man with a rifle opened fire in a food court and an armed civilian shot and killed him.

Greenwood Police Department Chief Jim Ison says the man entered the Greenwood Park Mall on Sunday evening with a rifle and several magazines of ammunition and began firing in the food court.

He says a legally armed 22-year-old from nearby Bartholomew County killed the man. He called the armed civilian a “real hero,” saying he stopped “the shooter almost as soon as he began.”

The two injured victims are in stable condition.
