Richmond police investigate shots fired inside Hilltop Mall

RICHMOND (KRON) — Police are investigating a report of shots fired inside a Richmond shopping mall Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened at around 12:28 p.m. on the second floor of the Hilltop Mall located at 1311 Hilltop Mall Rd.

Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill said two groups inside a store in the mall got into an argument that spilled into the parking lot. Two suspects in one of the groups
fired six shots at the other group, striking two vehicles with one round each.

None of the members of the other group, who did not return gunfire, were reportedly struck by the bullets, Hill said.

Both groups fled prior to the arrival of officers and remain at large, he said.

Hill said the incident was never an active shooter situation and the mall was not placed on lockdown, although a nearby school was briefly.

The shooting is under investigation.
