| November 28, 2014 | 1 Comment

UPDATE: 4:37pm.  Police are reporting that a fight broke out between two juveniles in the Westfield Annapolis mall about an hour ago which caused a panic on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Police have not released any details at this point, but from an employee at the mall, someone put a “bottle bomb” in a trash can which caused a bang.  A fight ensued from there. The bang was confirmed by two other patrons at the mall who did indeed say that it sounded like a gunshot. From there, things just snowballed.  In the end, the fight was over and the brief lockdown was ended in less than 40 minutes.

UPDATE: 424pm.  We are hearing from witnesses in the Westfield Annapolis mall that there were NO shots fired. There was a fight and there have been several arrests. Anne Arundel County Police Department has confirmed this.

BREAKING:  Unconfirmed reports are saying that shots have been fired at the Westfield Annapolis Mall.  We are attempting to verify with police.
