“We heard a stampede running through the center of the mall and people trying to run in and the staff here in our store immediately went and locked the doors,” witness Aury Moore told FOX 13. “While they did that, they had everybody in the store move to the back of the store and get low. Once they had everybody in the back of the store, they opened the back room and had everybody go in the backroom and offered us water and all of that, and got on the phone called the police.”

No arrests were immediately reported.
