Gunfire, VA mall closed after ‘small group’ fight

Police say shots were fired at Tyson Corner Center in Fairfax County, Va., following a “small group” fight around 3 p.m. Saturday.

Fairfax County Police tweeted:

Officers on scene for shots fired at 7900 Tysons Corner Center. A fight broke out between a small group, a man described as a black man wearing a black hoodie with black jeans and white shoes showed a gun and an unloaded weapon. No reports of injuries at this time. Area to avoid.

The WTOP reports that the mall has been closed and police are clearing it “to ensure the suspects are no longer present”.

A witness to the incident said:

We were walking through the mall, then on the other side, about four or five grown men…they were going pretty fast and they started running. And they ran in front of us, cut right in the middle, and there they were… I heard a shot. I saw smoke coming out of the shot. My wife grabbed me and walked into Brooks. And we stayed there for about two hours.

FOX 5 DC notes that the mall will be closed for the rest of the day while police move in.
