Man who shot two at Greenville Mall on Black Friday now in custody
A man is in custody after shooting two at a Greenville mall during Black Friday shopping. De’quazious Pollard was arrested Monday night, three nights after the shooting.

Police on Saturday identified the victims as Theodore Devon Dunn Jr., 21, and Irashamire Raashad Perkins, 22, both of Greenville. Both victims were transported to ECU Health for their injuries. No other injuries have been reported and there is no ongoing threat and both men are expected to survive.
The mall was evacuated around 6:30 p.m. after the shooting. Police believe a dispute led to the two men being shot. After the shooting, one of the men admitted he had a fight with an individual with whom he’d had previous conflicts, the Greenville Police Department shared on Facebook.

The police department shared on Facebook, “The Greenville Police Department recognizes that thousands of shoppers who were out and about for the holiday weekend were exposed to this unnecessary violence. We also acknowledge it comes at a time of heightened awareness across the country — with several mass casualty incidents occurring in other states in just the past week.”
.Police said Pollard jumped out of the second story window of his home to avoid arrest. A gun was found inside the home. Pollard is facing serveal charges including first degree attempted murder
