MILL BASIN, Brooklyn  — Kings Plaza Shopping Center was briefly evacuated Saturday evening after shots were fired inside and a man with a gun was arrested.

It happened just after 6 p.m. inside the Brooklyn mall.

Police say a man fired a gun near the Michael Kors store.

Heavily armed police flooded the area and quickly arrested a man with a gun. After a manhunt, another suspect was found hiding inside a residence at 53rd Street and Fillmore Avenue.

One person was transported to Coney Island Hospital with minor injuries.

Witnesses at the mall were shaken up from the chaos.

"I heard a loud, loud bang like someone fired from a firearm I suspected," one witness recalls. "And everyone started running toward Avenue U."
