Police are looking for a suspected shoplifter after a man shot at a Fairview Mall security guard Monday night.

The incident began around 8:45 p.m., when mall security attempted to arrest a man.

The man, described as a five-foot-eleven black male clad in a red Air Jordan shirt and blue denim jeans, was believed to have stolen a bottle of men’s cologne from the Bay.

Staff Sgt. Gary Hutchison alleged the man did not pay for the cologne, but did purchase some shirts from the store.

A security guard confronted the man and attempted to arrest him. When the suspect resisted and fled, the guard chased him.

At that point, police said the man pulled a handgun from the front of his pants and fired a single shot at the guard.

Police have recovered a handgun and are trying to identify the suspect.

No injuries were reported.

Police said they expect to arrest their suspect soon.
