JERSEY CITY, N.J. (WCBS 880/AP) — A suspect has been arrested and charged in a recent shooting at a Jersey City mall.

A Jersey City spokeswoman says Ahmad Broadway is charged with aggravated assault, causing widespread injury and two weapons charges.

The Jan. 11 shooting at Jersey City's Newport Centre Mall food court injured two people and sent shoppers scrambling for safety. The mall was locked down and no other injuries were reported.

Authorities have said the shooting was preceded by a fistfight in the food court.

An attorney listed for Broadway couldn't immediately be reached by phone Tuesday.

One of the people injured by the shooting was charged separately last week with aggravated assault and weapons charges for an incident that happened two days before the mall shooting.
