RALEIGH, N.C. — Raleigh’s police chief says investigators are still trying to determine whether there was a shooting at a Raleigh mall where witnesses reported hearing gunfire.

Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown said at a news conference Saturday that no one was in custody, nor was anyone wounded.

She said people heard what sounded like gunshots and investigators are examining all possibilities. She said no shell casings were found by late afternoon.

Authorities say that several people suffered minor injuries as they rushed to leave the mall.

One person said an argument between two men in the food court led to at least four shots being fired. Antonio Richardson told The Associated Press that he saw two men who appeared to be in their early 20s arguing and that one of them began shooting.
