CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A woman shot a man twice inside Chambersburg Mall on Saturday afternoon, just yards away from where a group of children were participating in a reading program, according to police and witnesses.

The woman pulled a handgun from her coat pocket and fired it twice at the man, believed to be her ex-husband, while he standing in front of the Bon Ton store, according to Pennsylvania State Police and witnesses.
The man fell to the floor and began crawling toward the store, witnesses said.
Some shoppers gathered around the man, while others fled.
Store workers praised mall security director Kevin Miller, who walked up to the woman and convinced her to hand the gun to him.
"He could have been shot. I thought she was just going to start turning around and shooting anyone at all. It was unreal," said Roy Ingram, whose Electrolux vacuum shop is located across from where the shooting occurred.
