Reports: Shots fired at Garden State Plaza mall By LUKE FUNK, Senior Web Producer - bio
NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - There were unconfirmed reports of shots being fired at the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, N.J. on Monday night. It reportedly happened about 9:30 p.m.
Police had not confirmed any information but there were several reports on Twitter about a gunman opening fire inside the mall.
Law enforcement scanner traffic reported a male wearing body armor and a rifle in the mall. Witnesses report a large police presence at the mall.
The Hackensack tactical team was being deployed to the mall, according to police scanner traffic.
Surprised that this took almost 45 minutes to break.
I was looking for another post, and decided to break it. Haven’t posted a story for quite a while so it took me a bit. Now they’re saying not sure if the shooter is still there.
not possible. NJ is a gun free utopia.
(PARAMUS - ) POLICE DEPARTMENT ON SCENE WITH A ACTIVE SHOOTER. UNKNOWN VICTIMS HIT. SUSPECT AT LARGE. MULTI POLICE DEPARTMENT ENROUTE. [NJY089]
On the news looks like every police officer in Bergen county is on the scene along with SWAT, but no reports of injuries or ambulances visible? Might not be a big deal?
The amount of time it takes the networks coordinate their spin.
am assuming the cops got the perp given that the crowd just went back into tha mall itself....but as theres no commentary on the live feed its hard to tell what’s happening..or what happened
lone gunman last seen behind grassy knoll...definately not a terrorist.
It was kind of interesting to watch about 25 SWAT(?) up armored police move in. pointing the rifles at every exit and wind, then about 3 times the number of Blue shirts casually walking out while SWAT moved in. The regular officers at least responded without waiting for SWAT unlike some incidents.
I guess I don’t know the rules of what qualifies as breaking news around here even after 16 years+, it got moved to extended news. Well it will die a quick death now. I wonder if it will turn out to be much of anything beyond a “normal” shooting?
without any narrative reporting I couldnt tell what ws gong on form what I saw.
NOW: @JessicaWCBSWLNY Chills as people recounting what they saw & heard. They say @ least 2 shooters in full body armor; at least 2 injured
this is gonna end bad
As 0bamacrash heats up, so do shootings. What a coinkydinky!
how many times have we been told there were 2 and it turned out there was 1?
You could add the word ‘breaking’ to the topics section and put it back into breaking news.
I could not get any feed from the scanner sites.
But, there is something going down.
Why would God have to pray?
Shooters will escape from the Mall, causing the DHS to lock down the entire city? IBIH (In before it happens).
Desperate times for Obama indeed. There is probably another Benghazi shoe about to drop.
Here’s what the local news is reporting from “eyewitness” reports. No statements from Authorities I’ve heard of.
>Shots fired approx. 9:30 Outside Nordstrom’s or Apple Store
>Multiple reports lone gunman in body armor walking through mall
>Multiple shots 4-7 no other reports of more gunfire
>Police letting people go after searching them for weapons
>SWAT on scene
>At closing time
>Gunman shooting security cameras
My own opinion is it will be less than it seems since I haven’t heard any reports of injuries.
I saw a pic on Twitter of a bunch of people going down the escalator with their hands up.
I guess everybody is a suspected criminal these days
Not like the shooter(s) can't ditch weapons and armor in a bathroom and walk out with everyone else.
@starledger: BREAKING NEWS: Officials say there no reports of any casualties at the Garden State Mall after report of a shooting. http://t.co/4sHEmDnshI
It got kicked out of breaking.
What's more breaking than an earthquake???
all the sudden I smell a dry run......
Still no reports of any injuries, strange but good if true. I don’t doubt that there was a shooter, too many eyewitness reports and general panic / stampede to get out from reports. This Mall is pretty big and it will take a good deal of time to make sure if it is secure.
It will be pumped for way more than it’s worth by Chairman Obama...
RIGHT NOW: NJ officials say police believe gunman remains inside NJ Mall; no reports of casualties http://bit.ly/1cJUS8h @starledger
Yes, it is definitely a new world around here. I’ve been here since registering was optional and anyone could post. I used to post articles almost every morning from the local papers when many were not even on line. I mostly gave up posting stories when all the copyright brouhaha started up.
thats the plan:
frighten as many as possible
convince people that ANYONE could be out to do you in.
then demand that no one have the means to defend against the GUN PEOPLE...
And the fat ass leftist Gov, claiming to be a ‘Pubbie’ is about to be reelected by a landslide. The ‘Fat Christie’ should become a sandwich in any or all of the fast food emporiums, such as McD’s, etc.
Gun Free is license to do this sort of shoot’em up and avoid consequenses kind of mentality. FU Christie.
What do you mean.It’s an expression.
All of a sudden I smell a Halloween party several days late.
Watching local news.Eyewitness said she saw him shoot in the air.
The FBI showed up a few minutes ago, long caravan of black vehicles. Something going on for sure, perhaps practice for something more sinister.
Crazy.I just hope everyone gets out OK.
gun violence is -—gun violence....must protect the air......
