LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a North Texas man is dead after shooting himself at a mall where he went to confront someone.

Lewisville police say no one else was injured.

Police say they were called to the Vista Ridge Mall about 4 p.m. Monday after reports of an argument between a woman working at a kiosk and someone described as a male acquaintance who had confronted her.

Police spokesman Capt. Kevin Deaver says the man pulled a handgun and shot himself when mall security tried to escort him outside.

The man was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name was not immediately released.

The mall was not evacuated but parts remained closed after the shooting as police were investigating.

Lewisville is 20 miles northwest of Dallas.
