Two people were injured at a mall in New York when a gun accidentally discharged, the New York State Police said on Sunday.

The incident took place around 3:15 p.m. at the Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown, about 70 miles north of Manhattan. State police say there's no other information immediately available about the ongoing investigation.

The incident was reported at an American Eagle store. A man who answered the mall security office phone declined to comment.

Witness Leighton Peterson tells The Associated Press he was grabbing a bite to eat in the mall's food court when he heard alarms and employees telling everybody to get to the exits.
