A man who was shot outside the Four Seasons Town Centre shopping mall in Greensboro on Thursday has died after being taken to the hospital.

The identity of the victim has not been released, according to MyFox8. Police were called to the shooting at about 2:16 p.m., according to Susan Danielsen, a spokeswoman for the Greensboro Police Department.

Police said there was some kind of a dispute between the victim and the suspect outside the JCPenney entrance. There was a loud argument and the victim was shot more than once. Police said the suspect then left in a car.

It remains uncertain whether the suspect and victim knew each other or how many suspects there were.

Witnesses reported hearing multiple shots fired from a gold-colored sedan. At least one of the rounds hit a man who was walking outside entrance D near JCPenney, according to police.
