HARPER WOODS, Mich. (AP) -- Police say two men have been critically injured in shootings inside a suburban Detroit shopping mall. The mall has been closed as police search for whoever fired the shots.

Harper Woods deputy police chief Jim Burke tells The Associated Press the shootings happened around 6 p.m. when a group of teenagers fired on a rival group at Eastland Mall east of Detroit.

Burke says the men were taken to St. John's Hospital in Detroit, and both were expected to survive.

He says an 18-year-old was shot in the chest, and an employee at a clothing store was shot in leg.

He says there had apparently been a long-running dispute between the two rival groups.
