A fatal shooting occurred at the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs on Christmas Eve, resulting in one death and three injuries. This incident is part of a worrying trend of gun violence in the US, especially at shopping centers during the holiday season, according to CNN.

The shooting at the Colorado Mall happened after a fight broke out between two groups. Police responded to the scene around 4:30 p.m., during a busy shopping period.

One man was found dead at the site, two others were hospitalized with serious gunshot wounds, and a woman sustained minor injuries.

The police have secured and closed the mall, detaining several people, and stated there is no ongoing threat to the community.

Holiday shooting

Today, we observe the trend of shootings in public places in the United States intensify. There is a particular spike in such occasions during the holiday season. The shooting in Colorado follows a similar incident in Ocala, Florida, where one person was killed and another injured at a mall.
