    Man reportedly shot at Omaha mall
    December 05, 2007 15:39 EST

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- A shopping mall in Omaha, Nebraska, is under lockdown by police after at least one person was shot today.

    Authorities say it isn't known whether the shooter -- or shooters -- is still inside the mall or how many people were shot or injured at Westroads Mall in west Omaha. Two people were seen being removed on stretchers.

    Police are letting some people leave the mall, but no one is being allowed to enter.

    Oh no! I hope he is apprehended before more people are hurt!
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Up to 5 people shot. One fatality, possibly a self-inflicted gunshot wound, found in the customer service center of a dept. store there.

    There are reports that the shooter may have been using an M-16. He may have targeted people at random.

    A nurse at an ER near the mall said that it was looking "bad, very bad."

    This is horrible! I'm glad more weren't hurt or killed considering how busy the malls are at this time of year.

    You're right, Taxi - as horrifying as it is, it could have been worse.

    I saw this and had to call my mother right away. She lives in Omaha and when I talked to her this morning, she told me she was going to the Westroads to do some Christmas shopping today. She had left the mall just about 30 minutes before the shootings.

    I am so glad (and glad you were able to reach her and put your mind at ease).

    Sounds like it got worse. With that many it doesn't sound like this was about a domestic situation...
