Re: “Updated: Reports of Shot Fired at Crabtree Mall

I have several issues with what is in this article. Not with what you're reporting but with the information that was given to your contact on the scene. I was there when this incident happened. We were in Children's Place which is upstairs down by Macy's. After hearing a sound that sounded like something fell, I hear yelling, screaming and what sounds like thunder (from a mass amount of people running). People started running by into Macy's so we took off and did the same. I heard some lady say there was a bomb. And others said they were just running because everyone else said to get out now including mall security. Plus in today's world, I'm not going to stick around to find out what really happened.

I did not hear a spray of bullets as one person had said, I'm certain I would've heard that. Plus there would have been bullet holes in the area and shell casings from a gun that would "spray bullets".

One report says down by Lush. And someone had an Instagram video with what sounded like a shot that was fairly close. They were right by Lush in the video. Lush is not near the food court.

Eye witness accounts are saying it happened in the food court. So were there two shooters? The shop owner who saw two people arguing and one pulled a gun..there is no video footage of this anywhere?

Why would officers share false information that they had someone in custody?

We made our way to our car in the parking garage and were able to exit mall property turning left on Edwards Mill. We were waiting with other vehicles and we were on the second floor. Why were people allowed to leave the property at all? The cops were already on site when we were pulling out onto Edwards Mill.

In the chaos that I witnessed, a shooter or shooters would have had no problem getting out when everyone else did. Because we got out before the lock down. We were in the car and waiting before we even heard sirens.

Something happened and someone knows the truth..whatever it is. I'm not a conspiracy theorist because I live in the real world. I mean what would the reason have been to fake a shooting st the mall yesterday. Also I'm not a "crisis actor" as some have accused of others that were on the scene. There were hundreds of people running towards Macy's. There were hundreds of people everywhere. We had been in the food court area at Think Geek before we went down to Children's Place. The place was as packed as you would expect on a Saturday.

We will probably never know what really happened. If it was in fact a noise that was created by something falling..we'll never know. I do know that being in that situation, running with my husband and 6 year old daughter to get outside isn't something I want to go through again. It's hard to really feel one way or the other because you just don't know what really happened. Had it been a mass shooting, I would be in a very different place mentally this morning.
