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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

Police letting people go after searching them for weapons

Not like the shooter(s) can't ditch weapons and armor in a bathroom and walk out with everyone else.

Don't feel too bad. I posted an earthquake to breaking while the ground was still shaking.

It got kicked out of breaking.

What's more breaking than an earthquake???

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.

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...

“NJ is a gun free utopia.”

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.

The FBI showed up a few minutes ago, long caravan of black vehicles. Something going on for sure, perhaps practice for something more sinister.
