Panic as shots fired near mall

A man was arrested on Saturday after firing about 50 shots in the parking lot of a Southern California shopping mall, prompting a lockdown of stores crowded with holiday shoppers.

Marcos Gurrola, 42, of Garden Grove was taken into custody by bicycle police officers patrolling around the open-air Fashion Island mall, said police spokeswoman Cathy Lowe. She said he fired into the air and onto the ground in the parking lot near a Macy’s department store.

No one was injured, but the gunfire caused panic.
