On May 6, 2023, a mass shooting occurred at the Allen Premium Outlets, an outlet center in Allen, Texas, United States.

Nine people were killed, including the perpetrator, who was shot by a police officer already in the area on an unrelated call. Seven were injured.


The shooting began on May 6, 2023, at 3:36 p.m. CDT. Wearing black tactical gear, the shooter exited a silver sedan and shot into a crowd outside the mall.

Witnesses said the shooter appeared to be firing indiscriminately and fired dozens of shots.

The Allen Police Department said that calls from the mall came in at 3:40 p.m., and tweeted that law enforcement was at Allen Premium Outlets at 4:22 p.m.

Allen police chief Brian Harvey said that an officer who was at the mall on an unrelated call heard gunshots and responded, ultimately engaging and killing the shooter.

Nine people died, including the shooter, and seven others were injured, with three in critical condition.

Medical City Healthcare said that it was treating victims ranging from 5 to 61 years old, with most of the victims being transported to Medical City’s McKinney facility.

Collin County Judge Chris Hill was deeply angry with “those that would do evil in our community, in our backyard.”

Governor Greg Abbott said the shooting was an “unspeakable tragedy” and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said, “We are grateful for our brave first responders who were deployed to stop the shooter and investigate this hideous crime.

We are thankful for their bravery and courage”. Abbot said he would travel to Allen on Sunday to meet with the community. Senator Ted Cruz thanked “incredible law enforcement” for stopping the shooting.

 Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, Seattle Seahawks safety Steven Terrell, Washington Commanders running back Jonathan Williams, and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Levi Onwuzurike—all alumni of Allen High School—released statements on Twitter.

President Joe Biden has been briefed on the shooting. He urged Congress to ban assault weapons and enact universal background checks, writing, “Tweeted thoughts and prayers are not enough.” Flags were lowered at half-staff to honor the victims and will be lowered until May 11.

California governor Gavin Newsom urged Congress to pass gun control legislation, writing, “We have become a nation that is more focused on the right to kill than the right to live.”
