SACRAMENTO, Calif. — An 18-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a Black Friday shooting at a Sacramento mall that killed two brothers.

Police say Damario Beck was held Monday for the attack at the Arden Fair Mall that killed 17-year-old Sa’Quan Reed-James and 19-year-old Dewayne James Jr.

Police say the shooting, which sent shoppers running for their lives, erupted after a “verbal altercation” between two groups.

The Sacramento Bee says video footage shows people in the two groups firing at each other with handguns. At a news conference, the father of the slain teens said he forgives the attacker.
