Police: 2 victims shot at Lehigh Valley Mall

WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Whitehall Police announced on its Twitter there are two confirmed victims as a result of a shooting at the Lehigh Valley Mall.

Police can be seen in the lot between Macy's and Route 22. The incident was first reported Friday night around 7:15 p.m.

Officials secured the parking lot and multiple police units are on scene.

The two victims were both transported to a local hospital. Emergency services are reporting one patient was losing consciousness and another victim had a gunshot wound to the leg, however, that has not been confirmed by police.

Witnesses tell 69 News' Jamie Stover that a fight involving 10 people happened near a waiting area just outside the Macy's around the time of the shooting.

One witness says the fight seemed to escalate from just a couple of men to multiple men. She also described that one man seemed to have a severe abdomen injury.

Also, Jamie reports shoppers are still going in and out of the mall but some people can’t get to their cars due to the crime scene.
