TOWSON, Md. (WJZ)— A manhunt is underway at Towson Town Center. Police are trying to find out who shot and killed a man outside Nordstrom on Monday night.
Meghan McCorkell has the latest on the investigation.
Police dispatch tells us a male was shot in the upper body outside Nordstrom department store shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday. Police officers say that man has died of his injuries. His name has not been released.
Just steps from the doors to Nordstrom, a man was found gunned down and his killer is still on the loose.
“There were no witnesses at the scene. There was no suspect at the scene,” said Elise Armacost, Baltimore County Police.
Police have been working with mall security officers and have checked the mall and surrounding areas for the suspect or suspects.
“They immediately went inside the mall, began canvassing the entire mall, looking for someone who may look panicked or suspicious,” Armacost said.
Police also searched in trash cans and under cars for the murder weapon; it’s unknown if they found anything.
Police had closed off some entrances and exits to the mall to help control crowd flow. They also worked to control traffic near the shooting location. Mall employees said they were not told about the shooting and when they called mall security, they weren’t given any information.
Shoppers are shocked about the shooting, saying it’s a tragedy.
“I was sad for the family. I mean, this is Christmas,” said one shopper.
Investigators say they don’t believe there are any surveillance cameras on that side of the mall but they are looking at other surveillance cameras to see if there are any clues.
Mall officials have no comment on the shooting.
There’s no word on any suspect or motive. If you have information, please call police.
