MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Three people were injured after shots were fired just outside of Wolfchase Galleria, according to Memphis Police Department.

Police said two of the victims were at St. Francis Hospital Bartlett in non-critical condition. One was taken by private vehicle to Regional Medical Center and is also in non-critical condition.

Officers detained four people, and it is unclear how many, if any, of them will be charged.

Police said the shooting did not take place inside the mall.

"Preliminary indications are that the shooting took place just outside the mall," Louis Brownlee with MPD said.

The shooting stemmed from a fight inside the mall in front of The Cheesecake Factory that spilled out into parking lot.

Brownlee also said that a gun was found outside the mall, but he was unsure if the gun was used in the shooting.

WMC Action News 5 obtained video of that fight that led up to the shooting:

"Everybody was running. And I was scarred, so I started running too," Samina Sprawling, a Wolfchase shopper, said. 

Police are gathering a number of social media videos and a gun found in the parking lot as evidence.

Wolfchase Galleria announced the mall was closed shortly after the shooting occurred.

Exactly one year ago, Wolfchase Galleria was cleared because of a disturbance.

"I feel like Memphis is not getting any safer. This is too much," Hamdiyo Abdullahi, a Wolfchase shopper, said.

Here's a link to the history of incidents that have happened at Wolfchase Galleria and Oak Court Mall.

WMC5 reached out to Simon Properties, the management group with Wolfchase Galleria, and they did not immediately respond for comment on the incident.

MPD is asking for anyone with information in this incident to contact them.

"We all need to step up and pass along any information you can to help officers solve this crime," Brownlee said.
