MELBOURNE, Fla. – Police say a Florida man who had "several pockets full of ammunition" targeted his wife in a shooting that killed two people at a mall food court where the woman worked.
Authorities say the Saturday morning shooting happened about a half hour before the mall was to open to customers. Fifty-seven-year-old Jose Garcia-Rodriguez of Palm Bay, died at a hospital following an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at Melbourne Square Mall.
The man's 33-year-old wife, Idanerys Garcia-Rodriguez, was hospitalized with a gunshot wound and was in good condition late Saturday. A police statement later identified her as a worker at the mall's food court.
Officers evacuated the mall, assisting some employees who had locked themselves in closets.
Another man died in the shooting. His name was not released.
