    A deadly shooting at a Florida mall left two people dead and one wounded Saturday morning after a man reportedly opened fire on his wife and another victim before turning the gun on himself.

    After responding to reports around 9:30 a.m. of multiple shots fired inside the Melbourne Square Mall, police tweeted that the "shooter is contained" and that officers were clearing the mall store by store.

    Melbourne Mayor Kathy Meehan told Florida Today the shooting stemmed from a domestic dispute between a woman who worked in the Melbourne Square Mall food court and the woman's husband.

    She said the man had a gun and shot his wife. A co-worker of the woman then tried to get the gun away from the husband and was shot in the struggle and died.

    The mayor told the paper the husband then apparently shot himself. The paper said a police official briefed Meehan on the shooting.

    The identities of the victims were not immediately clear.

    The woman and her husband were taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center in downtown Melbourne. Saturday afternoon police said one of hospitalized victims died. Police did not say if it was the husband or the wife.

    Police said the person who remains hospitalized is in stable conditions and cooperating with detectives.

    The Melbourne Police Department said the shooting occurred around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, a half-hour before the mall's scheduled opening. It was unclear how many people were in the mall at the time.

    The department tweeted around 10:30 a.m. that officers were "currently working a shooting" and "have control of (the) situation" at the mall.

    Within half an hour, police tweeted again that the "shooter is contained" and that officers were evacuating the mall store by store. Store employees and others were instructed to exit the mall through rear entrances.

    Elizabeth Trickle told Florida Today that she and a friend were in the food court and heard several shots from a short distance away. She said they ran for their lives.

    "It was a frightening experience, something that you don't ever want anybody to experience," Trickle told the paper. “It was crazy. We had just gotten our food to sit down by Starbucks and Chik-fil-A, and you just hear the 'pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, pop,' and you just drop everything and your body just makes you run."

    Police say the mall was temporarily closed.

    "Due to the unfortunate incident at the mall this morning we are closed until further notice," mall officials posted on Facebook. "We are still gathering information as the police conduct their investigation."

    Florida has proved itself to be about the worst state in the Union over the last several months.

    If you're posting this because of the state being overrun by Hispanics I do know a lot of natives down here who would heartily agree. I'm not one cuz I actually like multi-culturism - at least within reason :up:

    Actually I'd keep the north end, just extend the cut line east from the panhandle over to Jacksonville.
