INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 3, 2015) — Indianapolis Metro Police (IMPD) were called to Castleton Square Mall where a fight erupted Saturday evening.

Witnesses say the fight started in the food court with only a few people. He said that fight swelled quickly and moved outside the AMC movie theater where there were reports of gunshots.

IMPD officers did not find any evidence of that and never found anyone who was shot. Witnesses say the mall was placed on lock down for a short time before shoppers were asked to leave.

Police say “social media intelligence” helped them get a handle on the situation. A police spokesman says there was chatter on social media that said something might happen at the mall. Officers were already in place as a precaution.

There were no reports of any injuries.
