After witness accounts and surveillance video, authorities describe the man as a white or Hispanic male, about 6 feet 2 inches tall with dark hair, a beard and a mustache.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police. They say he was wearing a dark jacket and khaki trousers.

A busy mall in the New York State was evacuated Sunday after two people suffered minor injuries when a gun was sacked at the floor, police said. The woman is described as having blonde hair and wearing a dark jacket and maroon trousers.

A 49-year-old woman from Goshen and her 12-year-old son suffered minor abrasions during the incident states Chief Robert Hertman, of the Wallkill Police Department.

There have been reports the shooting may have happened as the result of an "accidental discharge", according to the New York Post.

An incredibly busy time for a shooting to occur as it took place during the Black Friday weekend. The loud bang from the gunfire sent shoppers scurrying for safety, either by exiting the mall or by hiding in back rooms with store employees. "We slammed the gates shut". Police are still searching for the man whose gun went off.

It was unclear if the shot fired was accidental or intentional, Hertman said.

"With everything going on in the world, you have to be prepared", employee Aiyana Raiz said.
