Mall Of America lifts lockdown after reported shooting

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — The Mall of America announced it was lifting a lockdown after Minnesota police responded to a reported shooting Friday.

The Bloomington Police Department tweeted shortly after 8:15 p.m. that police and emergency medical teams were at the scene of a shooting at the mall. The lockdown lasted around an hour before the mall tweeted that shoppers were being sent outside.

Police did not immediately provide details on whether anyone was injured or arrested.

The Mall of America confirmed the lockdown on its Twitter account and asked shoppers to stay in “the nearest secure location.”

Mall officials said on Twitter that the lockdown was lifted later Friday.

Since its opening in 1992, the mall has been the largest in the United States and has been a tourist destination and community gathering place. It prohibits firearms on the premises but does not have metal detectors at its entrances.

The mall was locked down in August after a reported shooting at the suburban Minneapolis shopping complex sent shoppers running for cover and two people were injured on New Year’s Eve during a apparent altercation.

Representatives for the City of Bloomington and the Mall of America did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
