Active Shooter Causes Panic at Michigan Mall

Panic erupted at the Macomb Mall in Roseville, Michigan after multiple gunshots were fired outside of a Dick’s Sporting Goods on Sunday afternoon.

According to police, it all started when two groups got into an argument inside of the store. They continued to argue outside and someone pulled out a gun. One male fired a couple of rounds into the air, and the sound of gunshots sent shoppers inside.

Shoppers and employees throughout the mall were running, crawling, ducking, hiding behind registers, and calling 911, unsure of where the shots were coming from, according to witnesses.

The mall was ultimately evacuated and closed for the day.

“The Roseville Police Department with assistance from other agencies secured the entire mall to ensure the suspect was no longer at that location,” a press release from the Roseville Police Department read. “The mall was checked and the suspect had indeed left the location.”

Investigators are reviewing surveillance video to try to identify those involved.
