RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Police responding to a shooting at a busy mall in Raleigh, N.C. said they haven't found anyone with gunshot wounds.

The Raleigh Police Department issued a statement saying that officers responded to the mall about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday to reports of shots fired.

They say no suspects have been arrested.

Eyewitnesses describe a chaotic scene after the shots were fired.

Witnesses say they hid in stores until police led them out.

Multiple news outlets report that police in Raleigh were working to secure Crabtree Valley Mall on Saturday afternoon after gunshots were fired inside.

John Riggleman and Kristin Warring told The Associated Press that they were heading to a video game store when they heard shots coming from the mall's food court. They ran into the store with dozens of others before the doors of the mall were locked.

Warring said she heard an additional series of shots.

Police told them they could leave the store at about 3 p.m.

An interstate exit to reach the mall was closed.
