Chaos in Charlotte

The Charlotte Police Department is investigating after shots rang out at a shopping mall.

The search is out for a suspect in Charlotte after shots were fired outside a crowded mall on Labor Day. Police quickly blocked off the area around the Dillard’s at Northlake Mall after reports of shooting. Patrons fled while others took cover inside other stores, some closing abruptly. The area was cleared some time later, with no victims or suspects found. Police will be stepping up patrols in the area to monitor any suspicious activity.
