FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Black Friday shoppers, with their shopping bags still in hand, rushed out of Glenbrook Square Mall Friday just after 3 p.m. after hearing someone had a gun.
While police said no shots were fired. No one knew that as officers ran in and people ran out.
"I was in a wheelchair because I just had surgery, so luckily we were in Express and I heard everyone screaming and I was asking her ' Mom why is everyone screaming?' she saw everyone running," shopper McKenna Monnell said.
McKenna Monnell said she and her mother and a few others went to the back of the store for safety.
"She was panicking because I couldn't fit the wheelchair in their storage area," her mother Angie Espy said.
Judy Sewards ran to her husband.
"I was sitting on the bench. He was getting a haircut. More and more people started running toward me. It got real scary and I ran into the barbershop. They shut the doors down and so we were safe," Judy Sewards said.
A video posted to social media appears to show a struggle.
Fort Wayne Police Department Officer Mark Bieker said that's when they believe a gun fell to the ground.
"There seemed to be an altercation that took place with two males. You can hear on some audio that someone mentioned the word gun, but at no time were any shots fired," Officer Bieker said.
