Yeah. RPD put out a statement saying no apprehension. And no gunshot wounds so far.

^ well shooting or not there are people injured and that isn't bs.

sheeple got freaked out by bubble wrap probably. The media will say it was AR-15 bubble wrap.

Most of the injury calls Ive heard in past 30 mins are either stampede related (bumps/scrapes) or panic (hyperventilation) related.

Sounds like the injuries are all from the panic and stampede out.

This claims to have the "shot" in question:

Sounds more like something falling or a firecracker, not like a gunshot, but I am no expert.

it sounded very muffled. Seems like those people were looking to see if there was a gun man... surely they wouldn't all have ran if there wasn't.

My cousin was on first floor by Lush and was there at the time. She said it definitely sounded like a gunshot.

So, question is, if it turns out there is no shooting, are they going to track down the people that started the panic and press charges?

^Truck on the way with pop up tents and pallet of water.

^^Depends if they did it intentional (threw a firecracker) or was it just an unfortunate accident (something fell) and people overreacted?

Ya lot of logistical coordination going on for long term efforts.

Police have started investigations, talking to people per reports on twitter.

^ Indyweek is posting all sorts of crap, none of it reliable.

From cousin:

Quote :
"I heard one bang, but we were downstairs and it happened upstairs. And as soon as we heard the one, it got so quiet and then SO loud and everyone was screaming and running. We were right at the door. After we got out, it calmed down, then everyone started running again and screaming."

How many options would you say there were? Either there was a shooting or there wasn't.

If there wasn't, it means someone caused a panic for no reason.

This is bizarre. Surely if there was 7-8 shots fired in a crowded mall someone would be shot. And surely if someone was shot we would know about it by now, no?

Noise could have created without the intention to cause a panic, with our without human involvement, that made people freak out.

I truly believe WRAL sought out someone who had the most outrageous claim. I'm surprised the woman didn't say it was an AR with a 30rd mag.

BTW, the reports keep flooding in of people passing out, having shortness of breath and shit standing outside the Marriott. Is it me or is this the worst evacuation ever?

I saw exactly one tweet indicating that, so chalked it up as bullshit.

^^ yah i'm not buying the country girl's account atm. you'd be seeing way more similar reports from the food court

^Truck is there with water now and tents.

Also scanner traffic says "the threat is over" but they are not ready to completely clear the scene and release people to the building and their cars.

ABC11 chopper just left scene and live feed over. Wonder if they were running low on fuel or just decided it was not worth shooting anymore.

BlackSheep Mostly that was probably the stampede out of the mall. Once out (watch some of the TV coverage) they were escorted in lines out the front of Crabtree, across the street, and over to Marriott. That takes some organization and that was done pretty quick I bet. So all in all, not bad handling. In any panic situation, theres probably people scared even after being out that had to be responded to. Ive not heard of any new calls in a few minutes, mostly just continued care of existing ones.

I think a few fire units were released.

On a side note, I wish there was more coverage of this car flipped on 440 E. Theyve called 5 different fire units for it from different districts, which makes it pretty involved and large (possible multiple cars).

Police will keep those details (if any) close for a bit. That said, they didnt start doing a formal investigation until at least 430-445 when they started calling for witnesses (see my above post).

Waiting to hear about this trauma just called for Best Buy for trample injuries.

Lotta issues with heat exhaustion right now. Theyve had 3 calls in past 15 mins for that at Marriott. Trying to find buses, etc with AC for folks.

Possible call as I write this for seizure now. EMS is definitely getting worked for this with all sorts of interesting things.
