Police Investigate Shooting at Mall


5-28-06 - OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Police are still investigating a shooting at a south Oklahoma City mall that left a 15-year-old dead and another young man shot and wounded.

Authorities say 15-year-old Victor Bustillo was killed yesterday shortly after 6:30 P-M at Crossroads Mall.

Officials say Bustillo shot another 15-year-old boy inside the mall, before he was shot and killed by an off-duty sheriff's deputy.

The name of the wounded victim and the sheriff’s deputy has not been released.

Oklahoma City Police Captain Jeffery Becker says the wounded boy was taken to a nearby hospital in fair condition yesterday and is still there.

Officials say no one else was injured during the shooting.

Oklahoma County Sheriff's Spokesman Mark Myers says the deputy shot Bustillo after he heard a commotion and a gunshot. He says the deputy looked over a rail and saw Bustillo with a gun.

Crossroads Mall spokeswoman Christi Parks says the mall has gone back to its regular hours today after closing early yesterday because of the shooting.

Parks says the mall did increase security today. She says yesterday's shooting was the first ever at the mall since it opened more than 30 years ago.
