The shooting victims — a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl — are expected to recover, KCTV Channel 5 reported.

Independence police are looking for two "persons of interest" pictured in the photos attached to this story. So if you've seen these guys or know where to find them, call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477 or the Independence Police Department Investigations Unit at 816-325-7330.

The shooting occurred around 4:30 p.m. after a fight escalated. The scene was chaos with people running everywhere. The mall was locked down (the mall has since reopened). Channel 5 reported that the victims are boyfriend and girlfriend. One of them was shot in the leg, while the other was shot in the foot.

This is a sad reminder of the April 2007 shooting rampage at the Ward Parkway mall that killed two people (a police officer shot and killed the shooter).

Luckily, this time, no one was killed.
