Mall in lockdown amid reports of 'active shooter'

Mall in lockdown amid reports of 'active shooter'”

Reports of shots fired at a mall in Miami sent shoppers into a state of panic Saturday evening.

There was a heavy police presence at the mall, but no shooter or victims have been found. "No one really knew if it was a gunshot or if a bomb went off". "If people are running that fast there must be someone right behind us".

The mall at 11401 NW 12th St. was on lockdown as police officers scanned the area. The Florida Highway Patrol and the City of Doral Police Department were on the scene providing assistance as well.

The witness said considering it was 9 PM (local time), there were a lot of visitors and shoppers in the mall.

Miami-Dade Police issued an all clear at around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Quintana said she was at the Gap Store with her family when employees began closing the doors and told shoppers to get out as quickly as possible.

In one piece of footage, a police officer appears to carry a large gun while patrolling the mall.

Some people barricaded themselves in stores.

"As we were walking to the [parking garage] everyone just started running", Mangwende said. Others said they heard gunshots. "This wasn't in my thought process when I came to Miami".
