TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Two people were shot late Saturday afternoon outside an Alabama mall, police said.

Tuscaloosa police tweeted that the shooting occurred in a parking lot outside University Mall. They did not immediately release details about the extent of the victims' injuries or say what prompted the shooting.

Authorities said it was safe for shoppers to leave the stores.

The shooting came eight days after an 8-year-old was killed and three others injured in a shooting inside the Riverchase Galleria mall in Hoover, about 45 miles (72 km) northeast of Tuscaloosa.
