    Updated:

    COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Police are looking for the gunman in a shooting at Cumberland Mall in Cobb County.

    A police spokesman said the shooting happened shortly after 3 p.m. in the parking lot outside Macy's. Three shots were fired. Channel 2's Ross Cavitt said a woman was shot at least once. A third shot was directed at a good Samaritan who was running to her aid. Police said the gunman left in a white van.

    "Apparently one of those shots people heard was a shot at (the good Samaritan) as he came to her," Cobb County police Sgt. Dana Pierce said.

    Police said witnesses heard a man and woman arguing before shots were fired.

    Several people heard the gunshots at a bus stop across from the mall.

    "I didn't know it was gunshots at first. It sound like some firecrackers, so I didn't pay any attention to it," one person said.

    Another bystander described the scene as chaotic.

    "Chaotic, crazy, people running everywhere, cops everywhere; crazy," he said.

    One witness said the shooter was calm and collected before he drove off.

    "He looked like he was in no hurry, it was like something he did every day," a witness said.

    Police have not disclosed a motive in the shooting.
