COLUMBIA, Md. (WUSA9) -- Eye witnesses say it was a chaotic scene at Columbia Mall on Saturday morning.

"I heard eight to ten shots and I work down at the food court ... everyone starting running and I ran into the back of Perfumania," one witness said.

Emotions ran high, just after the shooting.

"This country is in serious trouble, when people are this angry ... to go to a mall on Saturday morning, in the freezing cold and just start shooting people?"

A woman with two small children talked about the chilling fear in her heart after the shooting at the mall.

"I was really scared. I don't think I can stop my hands from shaking right now."
