MONROEVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say charges have been filed in connection with a shooting outside a western Pennsylvania mall last month that prompted an evacuation.

Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. and Monroeville police were due to discuss the charges during a news conference on Thursday. But the names of those charged have not been disclosed.

Authorities have said two groups of four to five males began fighting at the Monroeville Mall on April 12, and the brawl spilled outside, where one person pulled a gun and fired about 10 shots. No injuries were reported.

The mall, about 17 miles east of Pittsburgh was placed on lockdown and later evacuated. Bullet holes were found in a Macy’s department store entrance door and shell casings were outside.
