Something went wrong.
A man was shot and killed inside a Target store at a shopping mall in downtown Brooklyn late Wednesday night, police said.
The 25-year-old, who was not immediately identified, was blasted at least once in the chest inside the Target on the second floor of City Point Mall at about 11:35 p.m., cops said.
He was rushed to Brooklyn Hospital Center and pronounced dead, authorities said.
Police arrested a 27-year-old man at the scene, but it’s unclear if he was the shooter, cops said. Charges against him were pending early Thursday morning.
Witnesses described a hectic scene after the shooting.
“One shot. Just sounded like ‘pow,’” said a mall security guard who did not want to be named. “Then all the Target employees, everyone on the [second floor] just started running.”
No one else was injured in the shooting, cops said.
