A 28-year-old man was shot in the leg in the parking lot of the shopping center. He was taken by EMS to MetroHealth. There is no word on his condition.

Police told 3News it appears two people were shooting at each other before one of the suspects drove off in a gray vehicle.

"It's shocking, but again it's Steelyard Commons," one shopper told 3News.

Many shoppers said they already have hesitations about safety while shopping at Steelyard Commons and Thursday's shooting didn't help ease those concerns.

"I love my neighborhood. I love my house. People that are doing these bad things just need to get out, they need to leave," Lisa Hahn said.

Hahn said she tried to go to Aldi in Steelyard and was told it was closed because one of the front windows was shattered. Workers there told 3News they believed it was somehow connected to the shooting scene, but police could not provide any details on that.

"There's police, the crime scene investigator, everything over there, and now somebody is shot here," Hahn said.

Others said they were not phased by the shooting and feel safe shopping in Steelyard Commons.

"As long as they didn't shoot me," Dave Rogers said.

3News reached out to management at Steelyard Commons for comment but did not hear back.
