ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Police in northern Virginia say a person has been shot and wounded at a popular shopping mall near the Pentagon.

Arlington County Police spokeswoman Kirby Clark tells reporters that it happened early Monday afternoon in the parking garage of the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City.

She says two people were engaged in a struggle before one of them was shot. The wounded person was rushed to the hospital after police arrived.

Clark says a gun was recovered at the scene and that both people who were involved have been identified. She says police are still trying to determine what led to the shooting.
