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.

Fort Wayne police responded to reports of possible shots fired at Glenbrook Square. Though a fight was reported, no gunfire took place.

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.
