(Reuters) - A man was shot in the wrist at a New Jersey mall crowded with Black Friday shoppers and police evacuated the building as they tried to find the shooter.

Police received reports of shots fired at the Mills at Jersey Gardens mall in Elizabeth, New Jersey, around 8 p.m. on Friday, said Lieutenant Todd Kelly of the Elizabeth Police Department.
=============================
Suspect at large & the victim is refusing to cooperate with police. There should be more to this story. T'is the season...

There was another shooting at an Alabama mall. And the shooter was a former military man. I don't condone these former military men murdering innocent people but there is something very wrong with their mental health.

But the republicans keep sending them to wars - so they can get rich - and when they return home without limbs or suffering PTSD - they refuse to increase funding to help them.

And Cadet Bone Spurs thinks PTSD is a hoax!!!

Sounds like it could be gang-related.

No. The person shot by the police (Bradford) was indeed a former military man. The police said he was the shooter, but they said that because they had to justify shooting him. As it turns out, they shot the wrong man and the actual shooter is at large.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nati...t-have-shot-wrong-man/?utm_term=.4770a08ad4d6

In the evening, police released an extraordinary statement: “We regret that our initial media release was not totally accurate, but new evidence indicates that it was not,” it reads. The statement said, “New evidence now suggests that while Mr. Bradford may have been involved in some aspect of the altercation, he likely did not fire the rounds that injured the 18-year-old victim. This information indicates that there is at least one gunman still at-large.”

“While moving toward the shooting scene, one of the officers encountered a suspect brandishing a pistol and shot him,” police wrote in their first public statement, immediately after the shooting. In their revised statement the following evening, they said Bradford was fatally shot while “fleeing the shooting scene while brandishing a handgun.” In videos taken outside the shoe store, shoppers watch in astonishment. “That boy didn’t shoot at nobody. He’s dead!” a man down the corridor says, as officers stand over Bradford and pin someone else to the ground. “They just killed that black boy for no reason. . . . He probably got a gun license and everything.”

when a shooting victim refuses to cooperate with the Po Po, it is usually due to one of two things.

1) the person shot was also involved in illegal activities and either doesn't want the cops looking at him too hard or he plans on getting even his own way, without the help of the law

2) he's more scared of being branded a rat than of the people who shot him
