Two women were in stable condition on Saturday after being shot and wounded a day earlier by a community college student who opened fire at his school's satellite campus inside a southwestern Virginia mall, police said.

One of the injured women was a part-time employee of New River Community College and the other has been identified as a student there, according to the Christiansburg Police Department.

Both remained hospitalized in Roanoke and were not being named to protect their privacy, police said.

Authorities were investigating what prompted the suspected gunman, Neil Allen MacInnis, 18, to drive to the shopping center on Friday and shoot the two women at the mall-based campus.

The attack sparked pandemonium inside the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg, a town on the fringe of the Blue Ridge Mountains about 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Roanoke.
