Eventually, officers came and helped people safely evacuate the mall.

Video clips that appeared to have been taken by onlookers and were posted online by local television station WPTV showed large numbers of emergency vehicles converging on the area, and armed uniformed police entering the mall as a group of shoppers hurriedly moved away from its entrance. Police saw the trauma injury, but they said they now believe it was caused by the person running into a door.
Alexander said authorities still are trying to pinpoint exactly what set off the disturbance.
Federal, county and other law enforcement agencies were called in to assist in the search and investigation, he said.
