Police are looking for an attacker who opened fire at a Central California mall, slightly wounding two people.

Videos on social media showed customers running screaming for cover after gunfire erupted Monday at the Valley Plaza Mall in Bakersfield.

Police swarmed the building. Authorities say two people were wounded.

Their wounds are considered minor, KTLA sister station KGET in Bakersfield reported.

There’s no immediate word on what prompted the shooting.

The mall has seen violence before. A gang-related shooting killed one man two days after Christmas in 2005, sending shoppers fleeing in panic.

The shooter was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison without chance of parole.
