Police and emergency crews responded to reports of shots fired at Northlake Mall Monday afternoon.
North Division patrol officers responded to a call at approximately 3:14 p.m., though they were not able to locate any victims or suspects. Officers confirmed that the shots were fired outside of the mall, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said in a statement.
Medic also said it had no patients at the time, and that the scene was still being evaluated. “We are scaling back response,” Medic said in a tweet.
The mall is back open for business, and officers will continue to patrol the area for any suspicious activity, CMPD said.
Never miss a local story.
“We are fully supporting the police in their investigation regarding an isolated and contained incident outside the mall,” said Sherri Chisolm-Whiteside, a mall spokeswoman.
Northlake was the scene of another notable shooting late last year. On Christmas Eve, an off-duty police officer shot and killed a teenager after an argument broke out between two groups involved in an ongoing dispute.
