Police say two people have been air-lifted to Columbus Medical Center.
Residents are asked to avoid the mall at this time, police said.
Preliminary investigation has indicated that the incident was not random, and may have involved the two individuals that were injured, according to the release from police.
A suspect in his 20s wearing a white t-shirt and jeans was reported running southbound in the mall parking lot across from Opelika Road.
Shortly after police locked down the scene, they put out the word that there was no active threat to others in the area. Dawson said she crafted her own tourniquet from materials from both her and Darby's cars to apply pressure to one of the victim's wounds until emergency services arrived 10 minutes later.
