It appears that no one was injured after a gun was fired inside the Tyson’s Corner Center mall in Virginia Saturday afternoon, according to Fairfax County police, though the initial reports indicate that no one was struck.

At approximately 2:45 p.m., the incident occurred in a popular mall just off Chain Bridge Road and the Washington Beltway.

A fight broke out between a group of people, and one man pulled out a firearm to fire it, according to police.

People fled the mall after hearing about the gunshot, according to social media accounts. The mall also served as shelter for some shoppers and workers, according to police.

As a way to calm fears of mall patrons and others, Fairfax County police announced on Twitter that there were no reports of an active shooter. Apparently, police are clearing the mall to ensure people involved are no longer present.

The number of shots fired was not specified, but Col. Brian Reilly said that multiple shots were fired. The number of shooters was not specified, but shell casings were found.

Three people sustained minor injuries during the evacuation, but no one was injured.

“We will find, we will capture and we will hold accountable the persons involved for this,” FCPD Chief Kevin Davis said. 

She said that after seeing people outside the store running towards exits, her manager told everyone to move to the back of the store. In the back of the store near the loading dock, the teen hid with customers, including some small children. 

“I still don’t know, like, what happened or what was going on,” the teen girl said. “I feel so scared about it.”
