Throughout this article, there are videos from the scene.
Since the news just broke, the findings are unofficial. On Twitter, a man posted, “Active shooter at AVentura mall, yall be safe.” However, according to another commenter, the incident was caused by a disagreement between two individuals rather than an active shooter scenario. According to social media accounts, the shooting could have occurred in the Nordstrom store, but police have not reported this information or provided any further data.
Aventura police rushed to the mall after news of gunshots, and they were searching the mall while people sheltered inside in different locations, according to Local10. Be mindful that in the past, certain active shooter or shooting threats at malls turned out to be false alarms; it’s too early to tell in this case.
The Miami Dade Fire Department was “racing to #AventuraMall after news of shots fired,” according to WPLG-Roy TV’s Ramos.
