Police say two people have been shot outside a crowded Macy's department store at a suburban Washington shopping mall. Montgomery County Police spokeswoman Blanca Kling says the people were shot during an altercation outside Westfield Mall at about 5 p.m. Tuesday. Montgomery County police Lt. Paul Starks tells The Washington Post that the gunman then entered Macy's and shot at a police officer.

Neither the officer nor shoppers were believed to have been hurt.

Police say they have suspects, but have made no arrests.

Elina Kazan, a spokeswoman for Macy's in New York, says the store is open, though some sections are closed to shoppers because of the investigation. She says Macy's is cooperating with police.
