A man has been taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after being shot in the head inside the Pacific Mall.
A single gunshot rang through the mall around 8:45 p.m., just 15 minutes before the building closed for the night.
Steve Wong, a supervisor at Auto Parts in the mall, ran out of his shop to see a man slumped on the floor outside a mobile phone store, surrounded by security guards.
The shooter had already fled the scene.
"It's pretty scary. Nobody expects this to happen inside a mall," he said.
Police confirmed they are looked for a male shooter, wearing a black winter jacket.
Officers were stationed all around the mall, blocking pedestrians and vehicles from leaving the area.
"Nobody's leaving until we've collected all the information we can," said Const. Cathryn Harris of York region police.
Wong said he believes the violence will scare away some of the centre's customers.
"People won't want to come. They are shocked," he said.
Pacific Mall, located at Kennedy Rd. and Steeles Ave. E., is the largest indoor Asian mall in North America with more than 400 shops and boutiques.
