KYLE BUSCH and his family have escaped to safety after being caught in a mall shooting.
The two-time NASCAR Cup Series winner was at the Mall of America in Bloomington, a Minneapolis suburb, when shots were fired.
Police are searching for a suspect after securing the scene at 6 p.m. local time on Thursday.
No one appears to have been injured in the shooting, Bloomington police added.
They said there had been an altercation in a store between two groups.
And as a group was leaving, a member of that party fired three shots.
Busch was seen walking away from the stage with his son Brexton in a social media video.
His wife Samantha gave an update on her Instagram Stories for her 220,000 followers.
Samantha posted, “If you see the news on the Mall of America, we are out and safe.
“Praying others inside too. »
The Mall of America is the largest mall in the United States.
Police lifted the lockdown later that evening, although the mall remained closed.
Bloomington Police Department Chief Booker Hodges said: « After watching the video, we see two groups get into some sort of altercation at the Nike store cash register.
“One of the groups left but instead of walking away they decided to display a complete lack of respect for human life – they decided to fire several bullets into a store full of people. »
