(SOURCE) A gunman fired a single shot inside a New Jersey mall and was on the loose after apparently fleeing the huge shopping center, officials in Paramus, N.J., said late Monday.
Hundreds of law enforcement officials had converged on the mall after reports of gunfire. There were no reports of injuries.
“We are searching for a shooter,” the mayor of Paramus, Richard Labarbiera, told reporters outside the Garden State Plaza Mall.
Labarbiera said there was only one “confirmed single shot,” although several witnesses have described hearing several shots before mall security began yelling at people to flee.
