NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Frightened workers say they ran for the exits after a shooting a Nashville mall.

Authorities say a dispute between two males apparently led to Thursday's shooting, leaving one of them critically wounded.

Nashville police say the suspect was taken into custody and there no longer was any threat at the Opry Mills mall. Afterward, people then huddled outside as emergency vehicles converged on the scene.

Eighteen-year-old Jayla Chapple was in an employee meeting in the back of Moe's Southwest Grill when two people bolted into the back of the restaurant to report the shooting in the mall.

Chapple, a shift leader at the restaurant, says employees ran outside through a rear exit.

Says Chapple: "I really didn't have time to think that much, but get out of there."

With more than 200 stores, Opry Mills is Tennessee's biggest outlet mall, featuring a movie theater, a celebrity wax figure museum, restaurants and more. It's situated nearby ot the famed Grand Ole Opry and the sprawling Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center.

A cold front has moved over northern California on this day before Thanksgiving, and it brought light rain and snow showers to the higher terrain, gusty wind and cooler air for all. Thanksgiving will still be breezy, but also mild and pleasant.
