On Saturday, August 5, at approximately 7:09 p.m., officers working at the mall heard a few gunshots and immediately started pushing towards the gunfire.  Multiple officers quickly responded as patrons were fleeing from inside the mall and calling 911 about a possible active shooter.  Officers located a victim who was not injured and several witnesses to the incident.
