LAUDERHILL, Fla. - Police say a shooting in a crowded mall parking lot in Florida has left two people dead.

The Sun Sentinel reports 32-year-old Lawrence Hall and 33-year-old Omarie Stephens died.

Lauderhill police Lt. Michael Santiago says a police officer was working security Sunday night at a restaurant when he heard gunshots.

The officer found Stephens in front of the mall and paramedics found Hall on the east end of the mall. Another victim drove himself to a hospital and is expected to recover.

Police say multiple shell casings were found and that more than one type of gun was fired.

Investigators are trying to ascertain whether the assailant used more than one type of gun, or if multiple people were shooting outside the mall.

No suspects have been taken into custody.
