Miami (AP) - Authorities responding to a shooting at suburban Miami mall say one person has been shot and taken to a hospital.
 
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Lt. Eddy Ballester said the agency received a call about a shooting at the Dadeland Mall at 11:17 a.m. Monday. Another person was hurt, but their injury was not immediately clear.
 
Aerial news footage showed an armored car parked in front of the mall surrounded by police and fire rescue officials.
 
Jorge Divo was in the food court when he saw a crowd of shoppers running, screaming "that someone had been shot."
 
A Miami-Dade County police spokeswoman didn't immediately have any other details.
 
Dadeland Mall is located about 15 miles southwest of downtown Miami. It has more than 185 specialty stores, department stores, shops and boutiques.
