According to reports, some five gunmen stormed into the centre and opened fire while targeting the American Swiss and Premjis stores. ALS Paramedics spokesperson Garrith Jamieson reported: "On arrival, paramedics found two separate active crime scenes. The first was at the robots before the mall where a police member was shot. He was in a critical condition and rushed to a nearby hospital. Unfortunately, due to his injuries, he passed away a short while later." Jamieson said the second scene was inside the mall at the two stores. “ALS Paramedics treated and transported two females, one pregnant, who were assaulted during the alleged robbery. Both patients were stabilized on scene by Advanced Life Support Paramedics before being transported to a nearby hospital for the further care that they required,” he indicated.
