This evening, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Foothills District deputies responded to Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, located inside the La Encantada Mall, at 2905 East Skyline Drive for a report of shots fired. When deputies arrived, they learned two adult males were deceased from apparent gunshot wounds, and one adult female was injured, also from an apparent gunshot wound. After speaking with witnesses, deputies determined the incident was isolated to the restaurant and no other bystanders were injured as a result of the shooting. At this point in the investigation it appears that one handgun was used, and the two males and one female involved knew each other. It has been determined this was not a random incident and involved no other parts of the mall or surrounding establishments. This investigation is ongoing.
