(CNN)-One person was dead and two others injured Saturday during a shooting at a central Florida mall, Melbourne police Commander Vince Price said.
The alleged gunman was the lone fatality in the shooting at Melbourne Square Mall, Price said. The injured were taken to a local hospital; their condition was unknown.
Price said the “situation is contained” and the mall was closed.
“There’s no additional danger to the public,” Price said.
A witness said gunfire erupted in the food court and two people were injured before the gunman shot himself, CNN affiliate WESH reported.
A caller to 911 reported the shooting at about 9:30 a.m., police said.
Five or six shots were fired, according to the witness, WESH reported. The mall was closed for the day; employees were leaving through back doors.
