A shooting Monday at the Vista Ridge Mall in Lewisville resulted in the death of the shooter, without any other injuries. At about 3:57 p.m., a 25 year old male had an altercation with a female significant other who worked at a kiosk in the mall. The situation was described as a domestic dispute. Security was called and told the subject to leave. As security officers were following him out, on the lower level, near Kay Jewelers, he put a gun under his chin and pulled the trigger. Security officers had not been aware the individual was carrying a gun.
Careflite had initially been called for the victim, but was cancelled, and the person was transported to Medical Center of Lewisville after CPR. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Twitter lit up briefly as word got around of the shooting. Some initial erroneous reports had indicated there was an active shooter, or that police had shot the subject. Photos posted on Twitter showed a bloody floor behind police tape, just after the man had been transported.
More information as we get it.
