    One person has been taken to hospital in unknown condition after a shooting at the Galleria shopping mall in Dallas. An investigation is ongoing, and police are searching the mall for the suspect.

    A shooting was reported at the Galleria shopping mall in Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday, with over a dozen police units responding to the incident, according to local media. Witnesses reported that some shops went on lockdown while mall visitors ran for cover.

    Dallas police said that the suspect has not yet been found, also confirming that one person was transferred to a hospital in unknown condition. The police also noted that this was no longer active shooter case.

    ​The mall has reportedly been evacuated. Earlier, reports said that one person was injured during the shooting. 

    ​Videos showing an alleged witness of the incident, who said to have heard "maybe nine gunshots" appeared on social media, as reports say that police officers are checking every store in the mall, searching for the gunman.

    ​Other reports suggested that the shooting might have been a result of a confrontation of the two people in the food court, providing video that show a heavy police presence in the area.

    Twitter users shared videos allegedly filmed near the site after they received a phone call from a relative who was in the mall when the incident took place.
