    Watching this livestream... http://abc11.com/23390/

    So far I've seen one patient taken into an ambulance. She was alert and didn't appear to have been shot. She was actually brought out of the Marriott which seems to be where everyone is waiting right now.

    Looks like they herded everyone over to the Marriott from the mall. I'm assuming they're across from one another. Looks good that there are few injuries. :)

    At least 2 people have been seen on stretchers, I believe. Neither with gunshot wounds though.

    I am wondering if someone THOUGHT they heard gunshots and then chaos ensued.

    There is a video here that has what could be a gunshot in the background. I've never heard a gun in "real life" so I'm not sure if that's what it could be or not.

    If this happened around 2:30 today, we are late getting the news.

    Texted my kiddos, they knew about it, and I wondered how as they never listen to news. Well the timeframe explains it and her mother lives close to mall, so guess I was late with the info. They are probably wondering how I knew as I live a couple of hours away. Better later than never. - particularly in the world today.

    It was trending on Facebook by at least by 3:30. But maybe earlier. That's how I found out about it.

    Antonio Richardson, the owner of Casanova, a clothing store in the mall, says he was standing at the entrance to his store Saturday afternoon when he saw two men who appeared to be in their early 20s arguing in the food court.

    He says he saw one of them pull out a gun and begin shooting. As he was running away, he says he heard as many as four shots in all.

    According to one video here, loud bang can be heard (have not listened yet)

    ETA..... sure sounds like gunshot to me

    They are. I used to work in the office building next door to the Marriott and lived about 1 mile from the mall until December.

    If there was an altercation with gun shots but no one hit.....I suppose it's possible that the shooter just ran out in the commotion. If that happened, I think it would be difficult to find the person unless there is surveillance video.

    In a mall, I imagine there would be. So I hope the police have watched it and figured out if there was an actual shooting or not. I think it would be pretty quick to figure out. And if there was no shooting, then they could let people back over to get their cars and go. Right now, it seems like many people are overheating while standing outside waiting.

    Nobody is in custody. Have not determined if there has been a shooting.
