Police is southern California have detained a man who fired about 50 shots in the parking lot of a Newport Beach shopping mall.
There are no reported injuries, but the incident forced the evacuation of everyone inside and the lockdown of stores.
According to local police, 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola fired shots into the air and onto the ground before he was arrested by police officers patrolling around mall.
Meanwhile, police in Alabama shot and killed two suspects in two separate shooting sprees.
A male suspect was shot in eastern Alabama by police following the fatal shooting of three males at a trailer park. A police officer was wounded in the ensuing car chase by the alleged murderer who was armed with an AK-47.
The identities of all four fatalities have not been released.
In a separate incident, about 75 miles apart, a suspect, identified by Alabama police as 38-year-old Jason Letts of Jemison, opened fire early Saturday morning at a hospital in Birmingham, wounding a police officer and two employees before being shot and killed by another officer.
The latest incidents at the open-air Fashion Island shopping center in California and in Alabama came as America is still trying to come to terms with the horror after a gunman killed Friday 26 children and adults at a Connecticut elementary school, and days after a deadly mall shooting in Portland, Oregon.
