1 injured, 2 in custody after shooting inside Braintree mall


BRAINTREE, Mass. (WPRI) ─ Police have arrested two men in connection to a shooting inside a Braintree mall Friday afternoon that left one person injured, according to Massachusetts State Police.

Police believe a fight had broken out between two groups inside the South Shore Plaza and that’s when they began shooting at one another.

The victim, a 15-year-old girl who police said was an innocent bystander, was rushed to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The mall was on lockdown for a couple of hours, trapping shoppers inside stores until police could secure the area. Neighborhoods surrounding the mall were also told to shelter-in-place. Both have since been lifted.
