MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police say a man was critically wounded in a shooting at a crowded Memphis mall.

A statement released by Memphis Police spokeswoman Sgt. Karen Rudolph says officers responded around 5:45 p.m. to a call about a shooting at the Oak Court Mall and found the victim. He was transported to a hospital.

According to the statement, four men were later detained but no charges had been filed as of late Thursday.

Police say it appears the victim and suspects knew each other and officers were told there was a verbal confrontation before the shooting.

The mall was crowded when the shooting happened, and patrons ran for cover.
