BROOKLYN -

Two Brooklyn teens are in custody in connection with firing gunshots at the King’s Plaza Mall Saturday night.

Police took Quentin Raymond and Jeremy Denaud, both 16 years old, into custody Sunday, charging both teens with reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon.

Denaud is also being charged with attempted assault.

The incident occurred just before 6 p.m. Saturday when gunfire rang out near the Michael Kors store, forcing the evacuation of the entire mall and sending shoppers and employees running.

"I was upstairs working on the cart and I just heard four or five gunshots and everybody started closing the stores and I didn't know what to do. There were no announcements, nothing like that made," says witness Thomas Campudoni.

Police say no one was injured.
