NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Police have arrested a man who fired about 50 shots in the parking lot of a Southern California shopping mall, forcing a lockdown of stores.
Newport Beach police spokeswoman Cathy Lowe says 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola fired shots into the air and onto the ground before he was arrested by police officers patrolling around the open-air Fashion Island mall.
No one was injured, but the gunfire caused alarm, coming just a day after a gunman killed 26 children and adults at a Connecticut elementary school, and days after a deadly mall shooting in Oregon.
Lowe says some stores voluntarily closed their doors and kept shoppers inside while police investigated.
