OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) - Oklahoma City police officers are continuing their search for a suspect who shot a man inside the Penn Square Mall, Thursday afternoon.

Officials were called to the scene just before 4 p.m. Thursday after reports of shots fired inside.

According to police, people were arguing inside a shoe store, possibly a Foot Locker, when one man pulled out a gun and shot another in the chest.

 

The suspect is described as a husky black male wearing no shirt with a visible tattoo on his left shoulder. He had on gray sweatpants and exposed red underwear. He only had one shoe on when he was last seen.
