"It felt so close," she added. "It was so surreal. It doesn't even feel real right now. You wouldn't expect something like that to happen out of nowhere on a normal, Friday afternoon."

The Riverchase Galleria said in a statement that the building was evacuated immediately after the shooting and will remain closed on July 4.

"We are heartbroken by the tragic, senseless incident that took place in our shopping center this afternoon," the statement reads.

The shopping center was site of a shooting in 2018 when police fatally shot a 21-year-old Black man named Emantic "E.J." Bradford, Jr. after mistaking him for the gunman in an earlier shooting at the mall.

The officer, who did not face charges, fired on Bradford just seconds after two previous gunshots rang out at the mall. The report from Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall states that Bradford "was running toward the initial shooter and victim with a firearm visibly in hand."

Police initially said that Bradford was the gunman who shot two other people at the mall, but later said he "likely did not fire the rounds" that hit them. Another man was arrested and charged with attempted murder for that shooting.
