Police say nine people have been killed in the shootings at an Omaha shopping mall.
Two people were seen being removed on stretchers, and rescue workers were taking more stretchers inside the building.
Police were letting some people leave the mall, but no one is being allowed to enter. An employee of Von Maur department store says he heard a burst of five to six shots followed by 15 to 20 shots.
A woman who answered the phone at the Old Navy store said 20 to 30 customers were huddled with employees in a back storeroom.
President Bush was in Omaha today for a fundraiser but left about an hour before the shooting.
