BOISE, Idaho — Two people were killed and others injured Monday after someone opened fire at a Boise mall.

Along with those killed, four people were injured, including a Boise police officer. The conditions of those injured were not immediately made available.

The Boise Police Department says one person is in custody after the incident and that they believe there were no other suspects involved.

People were being told to avoid the area as police worked to secure the scene. Officers made their way through the mall to clear each business.

Special agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives from the Boise field office are also on scene assisting Boise Police.

Gov. Brad Little called the event "unthinkable" and said the State is prepared to assist BPD in investigations, in a statement posted to Twitter.
