One person was killed after an argument erupted at a crowded shopping mall in North Carolina on the afternoon before Christmas Day, US police said.
Detectives from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are investigating what the department called "an officer involved shooting" inside the Northlake Mall in Charlotte.
Police said that off-duty officers who were working at the mall arrived at the scene after the fight broke out. One armed person was shot and pronounced dead at the scene.
No officers were injured.
Police said that the situation was not considered "an active shooter situation," an indication that no armed suspects were on the loose.
