But around 3:30 p.m. today, Pavlenko said she heard a loud sound and then another and, as she realized she was hearing gunshots, the count went past five and six. She looked up from the Fabulicious Cupcakes kiosk and her eyes caught the figure walking slowly across the open area near Macy's. The figure, wearing a white mask, raised his arm and shot at a woman nearby as the mall's empty hallways echoed with screams. Pavlenko watched the woman fall.

Then, she said, the figure calmly pointed the gun in her direction and fired.

"He looked straight at me, and he aimed but he missed," said Pavlenko, who said she froze. She couldn't bend down. She couldn't move. "I thought he was going to come into the food court, but he kept going straight, toward J.C. Penney.

"He kept on shooting, and he kept on walking," she said. "He wasn't running. He was walking so slow. He dropped the thing he used to load bullets, and he just slowly picked it up and put back in again."
