A man was fatally shot in the parking lot of Market Mall in Calgary Saturday afternoon.

The incident took place in the south parking lot near the Apple Store around 2:14 p.m.

Several witnesses told CTV News they heard three gunshots, and say the man was shot while sitting in the driver side seat of a parked black Jeep.

Multiple bullet casings could be seen on the ground around the Jeep.

A woman who said she is a registered nurse began performing CPR on the victim, who was lying on the ground and appeared unresponsive.

The Calgary Police Service says the man was taken to hospital where he died of his injuries.

A witness described the scene before the victim was taken to hospital.

"We were just walking to our car and we heard three loud bangs and seen a puff of smoke come out and we heard casings and we just started panicking," said a shopper named Justine.

"My husband went to go check on the person because he's a first aider.

"I'm very scared," she said. "I'm shaking."
