Three hospitalized after shooting at Pennsylvania mall
Three people were hospitalized Sunday with gunshot wounds after a 17-year-old male opened fire on a man at a Pittsburgh-area mall, police said, striking his intended target as well as two bystanders.
The Monroeville Mall went on lockdown Saturday evening after the shooting. The gunman managed to escape but police say they were able to identify him by matching surveillance video with images on social media.
The suspect, Tarod Thornhill, was arrested at a home in Brackenridge about 3:15 a.m. Sunday.
Thornhill is charged as an adult with aggravated assault, attempted homicide, and recklessly endangering other people, the Allegheny County Police Department said in a press release Sunday morning.
Thornhill will be held at Allegheny County Jail to await arraignment.
Police were able to positively identify Thornhill using images from social media and store video surveillance, the release said.
Fox Chapel is close to the Monroeville mall, it could have been Beefy's clomping grounds in high school.
I've been there a number of times over the years. One time, I came home to see on the news that there was a shooting there right after I left. Not a place I make a point to go back to anymore. Actually, I'm glad to never have to go to any mall ever again. I don't know how most of them stay open. They're insufferably annoying to be in with the crowds of aimlessly wandering assholes and prices much higher than you will find a 1/2 mile away or from the internet with free shipping.
There is a competition between Amazon and blaeks to see who can destroy more malls.
