A man let off roughly 50 shots in a mall parking lot Saturday, sending frightened shoppers into a screaming frenzy. 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola fired into the air and onto the ground near a Macy's at the Fashion Island Mall in Newport Beach, CA. He also stopped to reload several times. 

However, he calmly put the gun down and did not resist when officers arrested him at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Police recovered the weapon and ammunition, and Gurrola was held on $250,000 bail. One person was treated at the scene after being injured while fleeing.

Gurrola was reportedly "venting."
