FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — A fight near the food court caused a panic Wednesday afternoon at a Fort Wayne mall.
Police responded to Glenbrook Mall around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon on a report of shots fired. When they arrived, they found dozens of people fleeing the shopping mall.
Shoppers reported hearing shots fired inside the mall, but mall security told police they found no shell casings or victims.
A witness tells us the area where the fight happened was under construction. The witness said they believe the fight caused a ladder to fall, which made a loud sound that was interpreted by some as gun shots. Broken glass was also found in the area.
Police confirmed that a group of about 4-5 people were fighting near the food court.
Area schools were placed under lockdown as a precaution. We have a crew at the scene and will provide updates as they become available.
