A New Jersey mall full of Black Friday shoppers was evacuated on Friday night after a gunman opened fire, injuring a man, and sparking mass panic.

Cops surrounded Jersey Gardens Mall in Elizabet after police received calls about a shooting outside the Tommy Hilfiger store at just after 8pm.

At least one man was hit in the wrist and was taken to hospital where his injuries were described as non-life threatening. The victim is reportedly not cooperating with police and will not confirm who shot him.

A pregnant woman was also taken out of the mall by an EMT.

Police say the gunman has not been arrested but they are in the process of reviewing surveillance footage.

Shoppers described terrifying scenes as they say at least two gunshots rang out, sparking a stampede for the exits.

Those who couldn’t make for the doors before the shutdown cowered inside stores or the backrooms.

Mark Alban wrote: ‘Crazy close call. We were at Jersey Gardens Mall, and suddenly everyone started running & screaming. We didn’t wait to find out why. I’m curious what the reports are. We made it safely to the car, but now stuck in the gridlock.’

Another witnesses described being ‘locked in the back storage room with like a 100 people’ before they were evacuated by a state trooper who guided them through the emergency exit.

‘Just left Jersey Garden Mall at Elizabeth, NJ. Possible Active shooter inside! Complete lock down,’ added Zeeshan Asim.

Elizabeth Police Department said in a statement: ‘Police and emergency medical personnel have responded to 2 medical calls at the Jersey Gardens Mall. Police are continuing to investigate the nature of these incidents.’

The shooter is described as a white male wearing a black beanie and dressed in black. Anyone with information is urged to call the police.
