APD: At least one shot fired at Coronado Mall, no injuries reported
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police officers responded to reports of at least one shot fired at Coronado Mall Friday afternoon.
Officers quickly determined there was not an active shooter, and there did not appear to be any injuries, according to APD.
About 100 police officers were in the area monitoring a demonstration at the Uptown shopping area when they were alerted to the reports of shots fired just before 4 p.m. Friday. They rushed to Coronado Mall.
While there are no reported injuries, officers did find at least one bullet casing near Boba Tea Company, police say.
The suspect is not in custody — police say he was chased out of the mall and he got away. They released two photos of him Friday night.
