The man arrested in connection with a shooting at a West Hills mall that left three injured and one dead has been identified by police.
The man arrested by police has been identified as Mark Connole, 34, of Woodland Hills.
At around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, the injured arrived in the parking lot of the Fallbrook Mall in the 22900 block of Vanowen Street.
One of the individuals met Connole for “unknown reasons”, according to the police. An argument broke out between the individuals and Connole, when he pulled out a gun and began shooting at them.
Three of the people suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a local hospital for treatment. A fourth individual was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics.
The identities of the victims injured in the shooting are not known.
Many other people in the area began to flee the scene after hearing gunshots. Police received numerous 911 calls indicating that a shooting had taken place at the mall.
After the shooting, Connole was seen fleeing the scene in a red Honda. Topanga area officers responding to the scene were directed to their vehicle by an LAPD airship.
A brief chase ensued after Connole didn’t move. Eventually he stopped and was taken into custody and transported to the Topanga area post.
Connole was incarcerated in Van Nuys Prison for murder and his bail was set at $2,000,000.
Police are still investigating the incident and have asked for help from witnesses who were present at the Fallbrook Mall when the incident happened.
