Paramedic service Emer-G-Med said about six suspects had been involved.

“Two patients were treated in the pharmacy; they had been taken there for help. One had been shot in the head, abdomen and arm,” it said. “The other, a security guard, had been shot in the arm. Both were in a critical but stable condition. Another security guard was shot in the foot and arm in the underground parking lot.”
