According to Tacoma Police, two groups of people fired shots at each other before escaping the area. According to the police, no injuries have currently been reported. Those who were there at the mall during the incident claimed that all of the shops went into lockdown.
“The salespeople instructed us to halt our activities, dump everything, turn out the lights, and lock the doors. According to Monica Gaspar, who was in the mall when the alleged shooting outside took place, “They heard that there was a gunman so we got trapped in the back and locked us up there and nothing for 20 to 30 minutes.” In less than a year, there have been four shootings at the Tacoma Mall.

Gaspar stated, “I simply feel like nowadays is not safe to go out. We just have to be safe and choose properly where to go out and if required.”
