Yuba Sutter Mall remains closed after man killed himself

Yuba Sutter Mall remained closed Monday, a day after a man shot and killed himself with a rifle inside the Yuba City retail center.

Shawna Pavey, operations support manager for the Yuba City Police Department, said a man believed to be in his 60s entered the mall around 11:30 a.m. Sunday and took a seat on a bench near J.C. Penney and Zumiez, rifle in hand, Pavey said. Officers arrived shortly after to talk with him, but he shot himself, Pavey added.

The mall was evacuated and placed on lockdown. No one else was injured.

A mall employee said no decision had been made yet on when the mall would reopen.
