4:30 pm, 7/31 - Gunfire at Arden Fair Mall

The Sacramento Police Department responded to a call of shots fired this afternoon. Police say an argument inside the mall spilled outside into the parking lot near the northeast corner of the parking garage.  Several shots were fired.

Officers say surveillance video shows two young men in an altercation with two other men near the parking garage and then shows one man shooting at the other group.    

The department is looking for two Hispanic men wearing white t-shirts and driving a white sedan.  Several cars in the parking lot were hit, but there have been no reports of any people suffering injuries.

The targets of the shooting are cooperating with police.
