Update: Authorities now say an accidental discharge is the reason for the gunshots at the Galleria at Crystal Run.
The man’s gun was merely visible and pointed towards the ground. It is believed that the bullet ricocheted from the second floor and hit two victims. The injured are expected to be okay.
Police say there is no danger to the community following the incident.
Two people were reportedly injured in a Middletown mall Sunday afternoon, a New York State Police spokesperson said.
