Yorkdale Mall Shooting

IS THAT YOUR SON? BROTHER? This all happened around 1pm, why weren't these damn kids in school.

A security guards life was spared today as a bulletproof vest saved his life. The guard was shot in the chest during a confrontation with two robbery suspects Thursday afternoon. The noise of the gunfire sent frightened shoppers running.

SIU has been called in as it appears a 17 year old suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. Stories indicate the boys that have been arrested were in the process of committing a robbery. Two suspects, aged 15 and 17, were taken into custody. It's alleged the 15-year-old was carrying the gun.

Despite the shooting, Branoff called Yorkdale "a very safe mall.". YEAH RIGHT. I know at least 3 people that have been robbed at this mall. Lets just say I no longer park on the Holt Renfrew side if I decide to go there which is like once a year.
