At least one person has been killed by a gunman after shots were reported fired inside an Indiana mall on Saturday after footage showed terrified shoppers sprinting away. 

Frantic calls flooded into the Mishawaka Police Department just before 3pm as residents reported a shooting at University Park Mall.

St. Joseph County Coroner Michael McGann confirmed on Saturday evening that one person had been killed but no other details were available, the South Bend Tribune reported.

As of 3:45pm, police said the incident was no longer an active shooter situation and that they were searching for a suspect. 

Footage taken by a witness at University Park Mall shows a crowd of people screaming as they run towards the exit doors.

There is no official word on injuries, but one Indiana journalist and witnesses reported that a person was shot. 

She, her family, and about 35 others rushed into the store’s back room before eventually emerging after the danger had apparently passed.
