Concord police responded to a call about a fight outside a Dave and Buster's at Concord Mills mall on Saturday night, police said in a statement. Officers discovered there had been a shooting and that two boys had suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Police had said in tweets that the 13-year-old girl died at the scene.
