NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A man was killed and two women were injured in a shooting at a Virginia mall on Saturday night, police said.

Norfolk police were called to the MacArthur Center around 6:25 p.m., the department said in a news release. The women, who were shot in the ankles, were taken to hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening.

Police Chief Larry Boone told media the shooting was sparked by an argument over money and he believed the male victim and suspect were related. Boone said he didn’t know if the two women had a relationship with the shooter or the man who was killed.

The names of the victims were not immediately released.

Several roads in the area were blocked as authorities investigated. Police later shared photos of a suspect and a person of interest later Saturday night, asking for the public’s help in identifying them.

The shooting happened the same day as the funeral of 25-year-old Virginian-Pilot reporter Sierra Jenkins, who was one of two people killed within two blocks of the mall in March. 19. Authorities say Jenkins was caught in the crossfire as she left a bar.
