NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) — North Charleston police are looking for two men involved in a shooting at Northwoods Mall.

Police say the men opened fire just before 5:30 p.m. Monday night after an argument in a store. Witnesses tell News 2 that some of the bullets shattered glass.

“Shooter, shooter, shooter,” is what Brandon Simmons heard as he was evacuated.  Olivia Little, a Goose Creek resident, tells News 2 that she was shopping at J.C. Penney when store clerks told her there was a need for an evacuation.  Little said she was huddled inside an employee room for 30 minutes with other women and children, some adults crying.

Dozens of police officers responded to the scene.  At one point, a helicopter was seen circling above the mall.

The area was cleared and the mall will reopen tomorrow.
