Media is reporting at least one person has been shot near the Burlington Coat Factory side of the mall.

Multiple agencies worked together to clear the shopping mall, evacuate any of the employees and other persons, while setting up a perimeter, searching for subjects and suspects. Additionally, detainee buses were ordered and arrived on-scene.

Barrier buses were also set-up to block major entrances and mall driveways.
