    Default Lehigh Valley Mall: Active shooting ?

    So I take a ride out to Gettysburg today. And come home to the below news stories.

    Lehigh Valley Mall shooting: Police rush in as customers, staff run out
    https://www.lehighvalleylive.com/new...-rush-out.html

    Police and other first responders descended Saturday afternoon on the Lehigh Valley Mall as customers and staff rushed to safety, according to a report from the scene.

    Allentown police are part of the response to a shooting at the mall in Whitehall Township, a department official said.

    Jason Malik was shopping with Michelle Delong, of Lehighton, at Country Memory and they were just about to leave when they heard three shots, he said.

    It was crazy, it was like a stampede, Malik said. They were locked down for about 45 minutes in the store, and then were led out about 5:45 p.m., he said.

    Large police presence at Lehigh Valley Mall after report of active shooter
    https://www.wfmz.com/news/large-poli...173535bb6.html
    WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -- Police swarmed Lehigh Valley Mall Saturday afternoon after a report of an active shooter in the mall.

    Scanner reports indicated shots were fired inside the mall just before 5 p.m.

    69 News spoke to the families of two people who were in the mall at the time and both said their family members were forced to hide in the back of stores after they heard shots.

    According to witnesses at the scene, the shots were fired on the first floor of the mall.

    Authorities have not confirmed any details.

    Traffic is tied up on MacArthur Road and Grape Street. Drivers should avoid the area until the situation is resolved.

    It's unclear if anyone is in custody at this time or if anyone was shot.

    This is a developing story. Stay with 69 News and WFMZ.com for the latest details.

    Default Lehigh Valley Mall shooting

    Happened this afternoon. Not much news yet.

    My money is on targeted gang-related violence rather than random, crazed shooter scenario.

    [edit] When I was in college (Lehigh) and for a while after - it was super common to hear about shootings at (or around) that mall. I still went there all the time. That was before I was into guns....

    Please merge with ett's thread. No sense having two.


    Fortunately, no one was injurred. Although it sounds like a personal beef, rather than a random "do badness" attempt, according to the one eyewitness account.
