Active shooters in New York mall, mall on lockdown

GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (AP) – Law enforcement agencies are responding to a suburban Albany, New York, mall after a report of one or two shots fired.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Police in Guilderland were alerted around 2:25 p.m. Saturday about shots fired inside the Crossgates Mall. Hundreds of people were evacuated. Some sheltered inside the mall, which was locked down. Police from multiple agencies were searching the mall property and checking security footage.

State Police Maj. Bill Keeler told the Albany Times-Union there were reports of a shooting that seemed “like a confrontation’ between two men who fled the scene. But police could not confirm those reports.
