ATLANTA (AP) — Police in suburban Atlanta say they’re investigating the shooting of a woman in a mall parking lot.

Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce says a man and a woman were involved in some sort of fight just before the shooting at Cumberland Mall in northwest Atlanta Monday afternoon. He says the man shot the woman and at a bystander who was trying to help the woman. The bystander wasn’t injured.

Details on what the two may have argued over weren’t immediately available.

Police say the shooting happened outside a Macy’s department store.

Details on the victim’s injuries weren’t immediately available. Authorities say the shooter left the parking lot in a white van. Pierce tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution it’s unclear whether the suspected shooter was driving or a passenger.
