OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected of shooting another man during an argument inside an Oklahoma City mall is jailed after turning himself in to police. Police say investigators identified 24-year-old Elizha Sanders as the suspect Thursday night and Sanders met officers overnight in the nearby community of Moore. Jail records show Sanders is being held on a complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Thursday's shooting forced Penn Square Mall to close as police spent hours searching stores and clearing out shoppers. The victim was last listed in critical but stable condition at a hospital after being shot in the chest.
