CHRISTIANA, Delaware (WPVI) -- Delaware state police released an image of three suspects wanted in connection with a shooting at Christiana Mall over the weekend.
Police say three males are being sought after gunfire rang out near the food court on Saturday around 6:43 p.m.
According to investigators, the suspects confronted and assaulted an 18-year-old male victim while exiting the food court.
The victim's friends then engaged in an altercation with the suspects.
"During the fight, one suspect removed a handgun from his waistband and began firing multiple rounds," police said in a news release.
The 18-year-old, his 16-year-old friend and another victim were all injured in the shooting.
All three victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Sage Cimalore says she was in the Apple Store when she heard the shots. She called her mom in a panic.
"When everybody started running, I left my keys and my wallet and my computer on the counter," she said.
"Sheer terror because you imagine the worst. You don't understand what's going on, nor did she," added Sage's mom, Tamara Cimalore.
Sage ran for her life as other shoppers hid in stores.
"We couldn't get in my car, we didn't know where to go. We were running and didn't know what's happening or what exit they're going to come out of," said Sage, who was back at the mall Monday to pick up her belongings.
For anyone looking to retrieve items left behind should go to the vacant storefront next to the Apple store on Monday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Action News also spoke with a man who was inside the food court waiting to get pizza when he was shot by the gunman.
"We heard like seven or eight shots, 'Bam! Bam! Bam!'" recalled Jim Harmon, a gunshot victim. "Everybody started running."
Harmon was waiting for his food and says as he started to walk away, bullets started flying. The next thing he knew, he was hit.
"I felt something graze off my shoulder," he said. "It's not bad, but it's ok."
Margaret Guy, president of the Stop the Violence Prayer Chain Foundation, led a protest outside of the mall on Monday.
"A lot of these children live like this in the communities. They don't expect to come to the mall and run into a shooting at the mall. We cannot let these young teenagers or people with guns run us away from our everyday life," said Guy.
The Christiana Mall released this statement on the shooting:
"We are troubled by Saturday's isolated incident, as Christiana Mall is private property where firearms are strictly prohibited. We remain steadfast in our commitment to the safety and comfort of our guests, tenants, and employees, which has been and remains our highest priority. We do not publicly discuss security protocols but we can share that upon reopening this morning, there is an increased police and security presence at the shopping center."
Police believe the suspects are teenagers. Anyone with information is asked to call Delaware State Police at 302-365-8467.
