    The mall is not closed, but the police are urging citizens to avoid the food court area in one of the biggest shopping centers in the United States. According to the police, the shooting has apparently resulted from an assault or a quarrel.

    A young man was shot in the leg at Destiny USA Mall on Black Friday, a journalist for CNYCentral reported on Twitter.

    The Syracuse Police Department has confirmed the news.

    Initially, some parts of the mall were on lockdown, but later the police allowed the citizens at the scene to leave.

    Witnesses reported people were all in a panic as they heard the gunshot.

    The shooter has still not been found and the police requested anyone who has information about the suspect to call 911.

    While the investigation is underway, Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner assured that "everything is safe now".
