Secret Service Agent is Wounded During Melee in Maryland Mall
An off-duty Secret Service agent was shot after intervening in a fight in a shopping mall food court, and he returned fire, wounding the shooter, police said.
A third person was also shot in the melee Saturday evening, and all were hospitalized in stable condition, said Officer Sara Schriver, an Anne Arundel County police spokeswoman.
The agent was at the Westfield Annapolis mall with his family shortly after 7 p.m. when he saw a group of men attacking another man, Schriver said.
"They all just started attacking one individual ... physically assaulting him, punching him," she said.
The agent tried to break up the fight, and someone in the group drew a gun and started firing, she said. After the agent was shot, he drew his handgun and returned fire, wounding the shooter, police said. A third person was shot during the gunfight, but it was not clear who shot that person, Schriver said.
The agent and the shooter were flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. The third victim was driven to a local hospital. Their identities were not released.
