Police increased their presence in the area following Saturday’s incident, police spokesman Charles Francis said.

Investigators say it began as an argument between two groups of people near the food court, then the groups ended up outside in the mall’s parking lot where shots were fired.

So far, police have not been able to find anyone who was actually hit by gunfire, Francis said. No vehicles or other property has been reported damaged to investigators, he said.
