A man who showed up at the Moreno Valley Mall on Thursday with a ski mask and a pellet gun shot four people, but no one was seriously injured, a sheriff's sergeant said.
The man started shooting people with the pellet gun around 11 a.m. at the mall at 22500 Town Circle Drive, said sheriff's Sgt. Don Goodrich.
"The guy shows up out of nowhere wearing a dark ski mask, blue pants and a blue or green, long-sleeved shirt," said Goodrich.
He walked quickly through, shooting at least four people, two of them employees at a kiosk.

He was last seen entering the adjacent cinema, into one of the theaters and presumably, said Goodrich, out an emergency exit.
The victims were bruised by the pellets, the sergeant said.
Anyone with information about the man was asked to call investigators at 951-486-6700.
