ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Police say one person was injured in an altercation and exchange of gunfire between two vehicles in the parking lot of an Alexandria mall.

The Alexandria Police Department received reports of shots fired in the mall lot around 7:10 p.m. Thursday. Police said in a statement that the cars left the scene after the shooting.

The Town Talk reports (https://townta.lk/1T99uCD ) police learned one person was taken to a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening. It wasn’t immediately clear whether that person had been inside one of the vehicles.

Police say the incident was unrelated to the mall. Officers closed an entrance to one store while processing evidence, but no other stores were affected.

Police said additional patrols would be added in the area to supplement security already in place.
