ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Roanoke Police say still no arrests have been made after Saturday night’s shooting at the Valley View Mall. They say the one person injured in the shooting has a non-life-threatening injury and the condition has not changed.

WDBJ7 spoke with the Roanoke mayor Monday about the shooting. He said he is concerned and frustrated with the violence in the mall.

“I’m confident with the work of our police chief, our commonwealth’s attorney, the federal authorities, we’re going to really find out who did this and we’re going to continue to work to keep our citizens safe from this senseless, senseless violence,” Mayor Sherman Lea said.

Mayor Lea hopes the public can help police identify the Valley View Mall shooter.
