Palm Beach Gardens Police have arrested one person in connection to a report of shots fired at the Gardens Mall.
The person has been taken into custody, but officials say the on-scene investigation is still active.
At around 2 p.m. on Friday, law enforcement officers responded to a fight-in-progress call in the mall’s parking lot.
Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue confirmed that shots were fired, but reported that no patients were transported to the hospital.
The shooter did not enter the Gardens Mall at any time, according to police.
Out of an abundance of safety, the mall was placed on a brief lockdown.
In an incident thought to be unrelated to the shooting, police also responded to a crash along Gardens Parkway and Fairchild Gardens, just outside of the mall’s parking lot.
Initial reports indicate the car crashed into a tree.
