Summary off of Reddit of the RPD press conference just finished:



Initials reports of gunshots at 2:35pm local time at Crabtree Mall

The Mall was very busy when the incident occurred. Mall has been completely evacuated.

No one in custody.

No shell casings have been found.

No conclusion that there was a shooter.

8 people injured whilst leaving the mall, ages range from 10 to 70 years. Only minor injuries.

Investigation is underway with multiple resources commited.

Authorities onsite: Local law enforcement, Federal, State, FBI, ATF as well as EMS and Fire.

Conflicting reports regarding gunshots, number of shots and witness to a shooter with a handgun, but looking at all possibilities.

Thanks extended to authorities and those that provided assistance. Also to those people who were in the mall for their patience, given the heat and circumstances.

Mariott and Embassy hotels took in people and provided water, shelter from the heat, air conditioning.

GoRaleigh provided buses to shelter people from the heat.

no idea. That said I bet the mall stays closed at least overnight, maybe rest of weekend while they go over looking for that.

Until they can be certain something "fell" and caused the noise, they will keep looking within reason, for evidence of a shooting.

I have heard at least 3 separate interviews where people say they heard 1 loud bang (like the one in the video).

WRAL keeps playing the interview with the "country girl" that claims she heard 6-8 shots.

If the shooter's problem solver's name was revolver, there wouldn't be any shell casings either

^Yea cousin thought she and her fiance were going to get shot in the back while they ran out.

Anybody else with a CCP think about what you would do in a situation like this? Especially if you have a family to consider as well? Would you hit the deck or find cover and assess the situation knowing you can return fire if need be, hide in a store, or just run like crazy? I carry sometimes, but I'm definitely not crazy paranoid guy who thinks out shooter scenarios and shit like that outside of the standard somebody walks up to you with a knife or something. I'm also not one of the guys with a hero complex or who is looking for an excuse to draw on somebody. If I was just out minding my own business at Southpoint or Crabtree or anywhere else with a crowd and some shit like this went down I think I would probably just tuck tail and haul ass out too.

^ yep. Pretty much what you said.
Unless I'm directly in the line of fire, I'm gone.
Now, if there are active shooter(s) that can be heard, gun will be out in low ready, otherwise, keeping the yese open and heading out.

Keep in mind, all of the injuries reported have been from the stampede. If you aren't first, don't get stuck standing in a funnel. The same applies to back halls.

That is correct. If you are a legal CCP holder then you should not have it on you in Crabtree as they have signs up. Guess this guy missed the sign?

Dude. Just own the fact that you feel the need to go through life with a fucking gun strapped on your waist. Quit making excuses and stating that you're not like "those people," because you obviously are.

I also carry sometimes. There is a distinct difference between wanting to be protected at times and thinking you'll be needed to help overthrow the government.

my question to him is, why carry if you've never thought about what you would do in a situation where you would need to use it? lmao. I'm not "one of those crazy people who thinks about what they would do in a situation where they would use their gun".........but i carry a gun. That means you'll never use it and you are just carrying it to feel tough and tell people you have a gun.

I carry and i often think about certain situations where I would have to use it if the need arises. Its called being prepared. If you don't know what you would do with it in a certain situation, leave it at home.

someone dropped something heavy, a few people panic because Fox News and trump have been preaching we're all going to die for the past year, these few panicking people cause further panics, mall gets shut down.

2 ghosts got into an altercation. One fired his ghost gun and shot and killed the other ghost. This was clearly a case of ghost on ghost violence

No, I am saying if it is a one on one situation where you can see the person approaching or threatening you then that is a pretty typical time when having a concealed weapon is very useful. I meant it more in a mass shooting or possible mass shooting situation. A lot of folks like to armchair quarterback and talk about being fucking Rambo and how "a concealed carry holder could have ended that situation". This was the point of me bringing it up, because the cousin who is a CCP holder but did not have it on her (and why would she, its daylight in a place with security and no guns allowed, right?) was talking about how it never even entered her equation, "Damn where is my gun?" She just ran. She also could not sleep last night and is still freaked the fuck out the next day.

If I was "one of those people" I would carry all the time and everywhere, damn the rules. I am not super paranoid always watching everybody suspiciously. I don't have it on me 24/7, I'm not like that guy who carries in his yard and maybe worries the neighbors and I don't have anger issues or any anti-government or race war concerns. I usually carry when I'm doing something like driving longer distances to places I'm unfamiliar with or going out late at night and concerned about possibly being robbed. I just wanted to know if others who have CCP on here had roleplayed this scenario out and what they envisioned they would do.

Every CCW course tells you that YOU and your family are the only lives you should worry about saving.

I have ran through the scenario multiple times and these are my conclusions.

Quote :
"-If I stay and fight when I could have escaped only bad things can happen:
-If I pop the wrong guy the media will label me as a terrorist/right wing extremist gun asshole. Think Zimmerman. I will have to live with killing an innocent man while i rot in jail.
-If I pop the right guy and its a no carry area, the media will give the credit to police and I will likely be charged. Also, regardless, the family of the bad guy will protest (unless s/he is white) and there will be moral monday signs with my name on it.
-if I die in the process, no one will know I wasn't in on the shooting... the media will still get it wrong and no one will come to my funeral.
-liberal assholes will use my name in an argument about why CCW is bad (regardless of how it turns out)

If I run and escape:
-I live
-Some liberal assholes who get caught in the situation may rethink their position on CCW.
-The media will call for more gun control.

A month or two ago I was at the Cary Mall food court for lunch and unfortunately one of the construction workers dropped a panel they were boarding up a closed stand with. I think mine and everyone else's heart skipped a few beats before turning around to see what had happened.

I couldn't tell if that was gunfire or not from the video either. It sounds like it could be a gunshot that's getting clipped by the microphone and echoing due to being indoors. It could just as well be something falling.
