Ellenton outlet mall shooting leaves man injured; no active shooter

Law enforcement is looking for three men involved in a shooting at the Ellenton Premium Outlets on Sunday afternoon that left one person hospitalized with a gunshot injury.

Manatee County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Randy Warren said the shooting lasted “a matter of minutes” and was the result of an argument between a group of Hispanic men — and not an active shooter situation.

“It was a targeted shooting, this was not random,” Warren said. “This was on the sidewalk outside the stores. They fired shots at the victim, then the suspects ran away. There was no threat inside any of the stores.”
