Hearing reports of shots fired at Arden Fair Mall – waiting for more info from [email protected]sacpolice.

Seems to be confusion over whether shots were fired at #Arden – still waiting for official info

— Kim Minugh (@Kim_Minugh) December 27, 2012

Radio traffic indicates a gunman was seen but still unclear whether shots fired. No known Vic Oscar #Arden

— Kim Minugh (@Kim_Minugh) December 27, 2012

So, were shots fired? As we learned from a recent incident in Portland, Ore., even first-hand accounts can vary widely. Those who were on the scene, though, insist they heard gunfire.

@prettyboywinnin I don’t care what they said I was right there

Mall security says otherwise. Sacramento Police report only a “large physical altercation.”

Large physical altercation at Arden Fair Mall, unfounded reports of gunfire, pd assisting with the disturbance.

20 people were fighting in the food court at Arden Fair Mall. The mall automatically goes into lockdown, no shots fired.

The Sacramento Police report that there was no gun, and shoppers are welcome back.

Arden Mall is open to the public, reports of shooting and or subject with a gun are unfounded.

— Sacramento Police (@SacPolice) December 27, 2012

I’m told by [email protected]racheymt, who was shopping at Nordstrom, that #ArdenFair is like a “ghost town” but for cops, security. Ppl got the hell out!
