GREENWOOD, Ind. — A mall in a suburb just south of Indianapolis was the site of a mass shooting Sunday afternoon that took the lives of three victims and the shooter, injuring two more.

Here is all that we know so far about the Sunday shooting at Greenwood Park Mall.Identities released in Greenwood Park Mall shooting

The Greenwood Park Mall shooting

The Greenwood Police Department confirmed that around 6 p.m. Sunday a lone suspect entered the food court of the Greenwood Park Mall, located at 1251 U.S. Hwy 31 North in Greenwood, Indiana. The suspect then shot into the mall, killing three people and injuring two more.

According to authorities, one victim that was killed was just outside of the restroom when he was shot. Two other victims, a married couple, were sitting and eating when the gunman opened fire, killing them.

Police said 24 rounds were fired and five people were hit before an armed bystander shot and killed the shooter.

The suspect

The coroner’s office and Greenwood Police Department on Monday identified the shooter, who died on the scene:

  • Jonathan Douglas Sapirman
    • 20-year-old from Greenwood
    • Death being investigated by Johnson County Coroner’s Office
Johnathan Douglas Sapirman, 20, of Greenwood.

The suspect was initially described by police as an adult male armed with a rifle and multiple magazines. Officials have since clarified that Sapirman used a Sig Sauer M400 semi-automatic rifle to shoot the victims. He also had another rifle and a handgun.

GPD added that Sapirman, the lone shooting suspect, is believed to have walked to the mall, entered a bathroom and spent an hour and two minutes in there before exiting. Sapirman, who police said brought over 100 rounds, then left the restroom and began shooting inside the mall, police said.

It is not known at this time what Sapirman was doing in the bathroom the hour prior to the shooting.DETAILS: Police raid apartment of suspect in Greenwood Park Mall shooting

In addition to a backpack with ammunition, police said they recovered two other guns and the suspect’s cell phone from the scene. Investigators are looking to uncover information from the phone.

Police raided the apartment of the suspected gunman hours after the shooting. There, officers found a laptop inside an oven.

FOX59’s Russ McQuaid was at the suspect’s residence at Polo Run Apartments Monday morning and talked to neighbors who said that between midnight and 3 a.m. there was a raid at the apartment. The raid included SWAT teams, FBI, and a bomb disposal unit.

No motivation has been released.

Family members told police they were surprised by Sapirman’s attack and that he’d never shown violent indications to them. Sapirman lived alone, police said, and was a graduate of Greenwood High School.

GPD confirmed Monday that Sapirman had been a regular at a local shooting range, Range USA Greenwood, for the last two years.

The victims

The Johnson County Coroner’s Office confirmed on Monday that three victims were killed in the shooting. Those victims were identified as:

  • Pedro Pineda
    • A 56-year-old husband from Indianapolis
    • Investigated by Johnson County Coroners Office
  • Rosa Mirian Rivera de Pineda
    • A 37-year-old wife from Indianapolis
    • Investigated by Marion County Coroners Office
  • Victor Gomez
    • 30-year-old from Indianapolis
    • Investigated by Marion County Coroners Office

Greenwood Police Chief James Ison confirmed Sunday that all of the victims were adults, besides one juvenile female who was mildly injured.

That 12-year-old female, Ison said, left the mall and was taken to a hospital after talking to her parents about being injured in the incident, police said. Photos of her bullet wounds, provided by her family, are below:

Watch Ison’s full address to the media below.

Both of the two injured victims are in the hospital in stable condition, police said.

Autopsies will be conducted on all three victims and Sapirman, the shooting suspect, on Tuesday.

The Good Samaritan

Ison also confirmed Sunday that the shooter was shot and killed by a man visiting the mall. The Good Samaritan, as police called him, was armed with a handgun.

On Monday, officials identified the armed citizen that shot and killed Sapirman as 22-year-old Elisjsha Dicken from Bartholomew County. Dicken was at the mall shopping with his girlfriend when the shooting began, police said.

Police on Sunday said that Dicken was legally carrying the gun and is fully cooperating with police.

“The real hero of the day was the citizen that was lawfully carrying a firearm in the food court and was able to stop the shooter almost as soon as he began,” Ison said.

According to Simon Property’s blanket policy, weapons are not allowed in the mall. However, his actions are being praised. As the mayor said, his actions saved lives.

On Monday, a Greenwood Park Mall spokesperson said the following:

We are grateful for the strong response of the first responders, including the heroic actions of the Good Samaritan who stopped the suspect.

The backpack

A backpack was found in a bathroom near the shooting scene, GPD said. At the time, the Johnson County Bomb Squad was called and soon after cleared it of any explosives, police said.

On Monday, police clarified that the backpack likely belonged to Sapirman and that multiple personal items of his were also recovered from the scene. His cell phone was found in the bathroom toilet.

The aftermath

Dozens of people in the mall at the time of the shooting gathered Sunday evening near Dick’s Sporting Goods as law enforcement and first responders from multiple different agencies responded to the scene.

All of the halls and corridors of the mall have been cleared by authorities, GPD said, and there is no active threat to the public.

A Greenwood Park Mall spokesperson confirmed Monday the mall is still closed as police continue investigating.

The investigation

Ison addressed the media outside of the mall Sunday, providing info on the investigation.

“As you can imagine, this type of situation is horrible,” Ison said. “It’s rocked us to our core.”

Ison said that investigators are just beginning to collect evidence from the scene and that officers are expecting to be in the mall until the early morning. No other information is being provided at this time, although authorities will hold a press conference on Monday at the Greenwood Police station.

Greenwood police are asking anyone who witnessed the shooting to go to the Greenwood Police Training Center at 736 Loews Blvd or call Johnson Co Dispatch at 317-346-6336.

The response

In the aftermath of the shooting Monday, Greenwood Park Mall released a statement:

We grieve for the victims of yesterday’s horrific tragedy in Greenwood. Violence has no place in this or any other community. We are grateful for the strong response of the first responders, including the heroic actions of the Good Samaritan who stopped the suspect.

China is expanding the construction of its facilities on Fiery Cross Reef.

Expansion

Reclamation on Fiery Cross Reef, which lies on the west side of the Spratly Islands, began in August of 2014 and its principal landmass was finished by November. Dredgers have created a land mass that spans the entire existing reef and is approximately 3,000 meters long and 200-300 meters wide.

This picture taken last November shows construction work being carried out on Fiery Cross Reef. The reef reportedly already houses a helicopter landing pad, a 300-meter-long wharf, a harbor large enough to dock military tankers, barracks and artillery emplacements.

South Johnson Reef

This reef was one of the first facilities to finish principal land reclamation. This recent picture shows that a radar tower is nearing completion at the north end of the land mass. According to AMTI, a new large multi-level military facility has been built in the center of the island. Up to six sur...

A naval base?

Beginning in early 2015, Mischief Reef - also located in the Spratlys - has undergone extensive reclamation activity. Experts say that the recent widening of the southern entrance to the reef, coupled with sightings of Chinese navy vessels, may suggest a future role for the reclaimed reef as a naval...

From reef to island

Significant construction on Gaven Reef began in 2014, with a total of 114,000 square meters of land already created. Satellite pictures show just how fast construction has progressed on the reef. A new artificial island was created between March (left) and August (right) 2014.

Troop garrison

According to AMTI, China has had a troop garrison on Gaven Reef since 2003, which has included a large supply platform where ships can dock. Experts say a new main square building in the reef appears to be an anti-aircraft tower.

As seen in this image, the basic process of expanding these features involves dredging sand from the seafloor and dumping it onto the reefs.
