MURRAY, Utah (ABC4 news) - Police are responding to an active shooter at Fashion Place Mall. So far all we know is there are two victims but we are uncertain if that will change.
It is not clear how many people are still inside the mall but families who have friends and loved ones who were in the mall, they are asking you to meet at the Taco Bell on the corner of 6100 South State.
At least two suspects still at large and confirmed two victims, a man and a woman, who were transported to Intermountain Medical Center with what appears to be non-life threatening injuries.
Preliminary investigation: Police are saying they do believe this is gang related and the victims were targeted.

yeah this is a gang thing. One of my friends was there. He said there was a stand off in the food court for like 2 hours.
Two 19-year-old men were arrested on suspicion of attempted aggravated murder, but investigators are not yet sure if either of them fired the shots that hit the victims, who were also involved in the brawl, said Kenny Bass, a police spokesman in the Salt Lake City suburb of Murray.
Shots were fired by the both sides, and those injured were believed to be people with the gangs. No bystanders were hit or injured, Bass said. Compounding the pandemonium, a fire alarm at the Fashion Place mall that had been malfunctioning for days went off inside the mall, sending people running for exits, Bass said.
Police have arrested a third person in connection with a gang-related shooting at a Utah mall that wounded two people and sent hundreds of panicked shoppers fleeing.

Police say he was part of a group of gang members who crossed paths with rivals at Fashion Place mall Sunday. They say the dispute went outside, where one person on each side pulled a gun.
