Saskatoon police in a news release said there was a “heavy police presence” around Confederation Drive and Laurier Drive after an incident at 4:08 p.m.
The routine of a Saturday afternoon was interrupted around Saskatoon’s Confederation Mall when the sound of what was believed to be gunfire sent people scattering.
Saskatoon police in a news release said there was a “heavy police presence” around Confederation Drive and Laurier Drive. According to police, officers were “actively looking for a suspect believed to have a firearm” and that an incident “occurred at 4:08 p.m.”
Brandon Lyndon said he came out of a gas bar across the street from the mall, when he “heard a pop.” Police vehicles, he said, quickly responded “into the area steady at high speed.”
A friend of Lyndon’s said there “was at least a couple shots, I guess, inside the mall.”
There were no immediate reports of injuries. Early in the evening, the area had been reopened to the public.
