ORLANDO, Fla. -- Deputies are on the lookout for a man they said carjacked a woman and then opened fire at the Florida Mall.

Officers said he was with the woman for just a few seconds then forced her out of her own car.

Deputies swarmed the area on the south side of the mall near Nordstrom.

A sheriff’s office lieutenant told WFTV the man crept up behind the woman in the parking lot, held a gun at her, and told her to get in and drive.

They said they drove to another area of the parking lot, at which time the alleged carjacker forced the woman out and for some reason shot one round into the ground.
