Argument led to fatal shooting at Mishawaka mall, police say


MISHAWAKA, Ind. — A deadly shooting inside a northern Indiana shopping mall happened after an argument between two men, police said.

The shooting that killed a 23-year-old man happened Saturday afternoon outside a jewelry store of University Park Mall in Mishawaka and sent frightened shoppers running for safety.

The slain man, identified as Delaney Crosby, was shot at least once and died at the scene, said Dave Wells, assistant commander of the St. Joseph County metro homicide unit. No other injuries were reported from the shooting, which led to the evacuation of the mall in the city just east of South Bend.

Police were searching for the man who shot Crosby, but they considered the shooting an isolated incident.

“This was an act of violence that had no regard for families pushing stroller, kids at the mall on a Saturday afternoon,” Wells said. “We are lucky that there isn’t more tragic news involved with this.”
