Updated 6:00 p.m. Nov. 29, 2020 - A community activist who was at the Arden Mall told a reporter that the boys that were shot had encountered some people they knew, and that interaction turned deadly. The activist said people should feel safe shopping there.

Crowds returned on Sunday to shop, with some expressing nervousness. The Sacramento Police Department said it was a targeted shooting and so the public did not have to be fearful.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Police are looking for a person who shot and killed two teens at a Sacramento mall on Black Friday.

Shoppers at Arden Fair Mall in Sacramento ran for safety after shots were fired shortly after 6 p.m. on Black Friday.

A 19-year-old man was found dead at the mall and a 17-year-old boy was taken to a hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Police say the shooting appeared to be a targeted and isolated attack, and they're looking for a suspect in his 20s.

The Sacramento Bee reports the coronavirus pandemic kept crowds at the mall thinner than usual on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
