HYATTSVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say a man was shot and killed in the food court of a mall.

Hyattsville police say officers responded to a report of a shooting at the Mall at Prince George’s on Thursday and found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hyattsville Police Chief Jarod Towers says a couple of people received minor injuries as people fled the mall.

Towers says it was the second homicide at the mall this year.

A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and indictment in this case.
