IRVING, Texas — An investigation is underway after police responded to a shooting call at Irving Mall on Sunday afternoon, officials said.

Police in Irving said they responded to the incident around 4 p.m. at the mall near Highway 183 and North Belt Line Road.

Police said the incident involved a suspect and victim who knew each other and that it happened near an entrance to the mall.

The video showed a man walking with a baby in hand and pulling out a gun.

"This is simply the aggressor is waiting for the individual to walk out of the mall," criminologist Alex del Carmen told WFAA. "Once he sees him, identifies him, he begins to fight him. Then the alleged victim pulls out a gun a points it at the aggressor."

Police said there were no victims treated at the scene or at a hospital in relation to this shooting.

Detectives have reached out to the victim, but police said the victim is being uncooperative.

There have not been any arrests made.
