A GUNMAN is reportedly still on the loose after a shooting took place at a busy shopping mall this afternoon.

After early reports suggested an active shooter situation, reports suggest police believe the incident was an altercation between two people inside the mall.

Police have confirmed that three people have suffered “non life threatening injuries”.

They also tweeted that they have “several suspects involved in custody and being question by Detectives”.

Video posted on Twitter shows people running out of the Aventura Mall in Miami, Florida just after 4pm this afternoon.

The online footage shows people panicking and running to their cars, while checking to see if family and friend were with them as they fled.

And another video showed a man rocking back and forth and bleeding from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his hand, with blood on the ground around him.

Fire rescue workers staged outside the mall are waiting for officers to deem it safe to enter.
