MIAMI -- Authorities say an armored truck guard has died in a shooting at a suburban Miami mall.

Miami-Dade police spokesman Det. Aida Fina-Milian says two gunmen are on the loose after the shooting Monday inside the Express store at the Dadeland Mall. Another person also was injured.

Authorities say the guard was airlifted to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses say they heard numerous gunshots and described shoppers screaming and running through the mall. A Dunbar armored car parked in front of the mall was surrounded by police and fire rescue officials.

The Dadeland Mall is located about 15 miles southwest of downtown Miami.
