HOOVER, Ala. — A shooting at a mall in Alabama left one boy dead and three other people hurt.  

The shooting happened Saturday afternoon in Hoover, just outside of Birmingham at the Riverchase Galleria mall. Hoover police say they received the call of shots fired near the food court just after 3 p.m. 

Four people were shot, according to police. An 8-year-old boy was shot and later died shortly after arriving at the hospital. 

The three others shot, an adult man, woman and girl were also shot and taken to the hospital. There is no word on their conditions.

Back in 2018, a man was shot and killed at the mall by police after an officer mistook him for the gunman at an earlier shooting.
