Apple has permanently closed its Northlake Mall store following three shootings at the mall in just 75 days.

According to Bloomberg, the store was open Wednesday morning with no plans to close. Later in the day, employees were informed of the decision and the store was abruptly shut down, four hours prior to normal closing hours for the day.

This happened in the wake of a shooting Tuesday evening outside the Macy's. No injuries were reported in altercation; however, several cars were hit.
