Witnesses said they heard at least two gunshots. Shopper Steven Hendricks also said there was obvious tension between two rival groups leading up to the shots.
"I saw a bunch of kids running and screaming. I thought it was a fight. Next thing I know I hear bullets flying and glass shattering," he said. "I thought, I need to go get the kids because if something happened to them I wouldn’t be able to live with myself."
As if the shooting wasn't enough, the excitement continued even after the shooting -- this time with a fire alarm.
Just hours after the shots were fired, firefighters were called to the mall for a small fire that started at a makeup counter inside one of the stores.
The fire was quickly put out and no one was hurt.
