(CNN) — A second young man has died after a shooting in a Sacramento mall, police said Saturday.

Officers responded to the Arden Fair Mall in California’s state capital following a report of shots fired a little after 6 p.m. Friday, according to Karl Chan, a spokesman for Sacramento Police.

When officers arrived on scene, they found two victims, one of whom was injured and taken to the hospital and another who was later pronounced deceased on the scene, Chan told reporters Friday night.

The 17-year-old rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries was pronounced dead hours later, police said. The other victim was 19 years old.

The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office will publicly identify the two men after next of kin are notified, police said.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, fled before officers arrived, he said. The motive for the shooting is under investigation.

“Based on the preliminary investigation detectives believe this shooting is an isolated incident and not the result of an active shooter,” police said in a statement Saturday.

The shooting took place inside the mall, Chan said, while there were “a lot of people” there.

Investigators Working To Identify A Suspect Or Suspects

Investigators are processing the scene of the shooting and are working to contact witnesses to get more information about the incident, Chan added.

“We do know that the mall does have a pretty robust surveillance footage so that’s going to be something that our homicide detectives are going to be definitely looking at,” Chan said.

He urged anyone with more information on the shooting to contact investigators.

“We … are doing everything that we can to identify the suspect or suspects who are involved in this incident and make an arrest in this,” he said.

Mayor Concerned About Violence

In a statement on Twitter, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg expressed concern over the violence and said he was awaiting more details from police.

“We are deeply concerned by the increase in gun violence in Sacramento and other cities during the pandemic and have supported increasing our efforts to reach young people at risk,” he wrote.

“A gun is never the answer,” the mayor added.
