Gunman kills 5

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) — A historic mall’s winding hallways became a shooting gallery for an 18-year-old gunman in a trench coat who fired a shotgun randomly at customers, killing five and wounding four before being killed by police, authorities and witnesses said.

Killed were two 28-year-old women, a 52-year-old man, a 24-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl, Snyder said. Four people were hospitalized — a man and a woman in critical condition and two men in serious condition, Snyder said.

Ross also said the wounded man was shot in the abdomen and taken to a local hospital. The nursing supervisor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital told CNN that it received a patient with a gunshot wound who is in critical condition.
