Three injured after shots fired at Aventura Mall

Chaos rocked last-minute Mother’s Day shoppers when gunshots ring out at an upscale South Florida mall.

Three people were hospitalized after police responded to reports of shots fired Saturday afternoon at Aventura Mall in North Miami, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials.

“We have several suspects involved in custody and being question by Detectives,” Aventura Police tweeted. “We have 3 victims who have sustained NON- life threatening injuries and out being treated at local hospitals.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if anyone was shot and police haven’t confirmed that a shooting took place, according to NBC 6 South Florida.

Customers and employees hid in stores, closets, and storage rooms, according to witnesses.

In 2019 the sound of balloons popping lead to panic and an active shooter investigation at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton.
