Providence Place Mall in Providence, Rhode Island, was placed on lockdown after reports of a shooting, according to reports.

WCVB reported that one person was shot inside a parking garage at the mall, and a Providence Journal employee witnessed a man being wheeled outside on a stretcher.

The shooting appeared to have taken place near the mall’s Nordstrom.

So somebody got shot at the mall across from work… scary times.

Two police officers were seen on the first level of the mall and told people to leave the mall.

The mall was then placed on lockdown, according to Fox25.

Police are still looking for a suspect and don’t believe it’s an active shooter incident.
