The Police issued a press release letting the public know that there is NO active shooter at the Auburn Mall. Just a man making terroristic threats on a Tuesday morning.

So please, don’t believe things you read on the Internet unless they’re confirmed by the police or TB Daily News.
We don’t know what exactly they meant by “terrorist threats” but it must’ve been pretty serious if cops swarmed the place and it caused such widespread panic. All we know is the same guy who called 911 is the one who was arrested for doing terrorist things, minus the murder, bloodshed, and accompanying manifesto. Hard to be a terrorist if you forgot your bombs and guns at Mom’s house.
