An alleged shooting incident at Las Vegas’ Fashion Show Mall Monday evening, as per eyewitness reports, prompted a large police presence inside the shopping center.

Among the several reactions, a user wrote on X, “Possible Active shooter @fashionshowmall in @lasvegasstrip .. Cops surrounding the corner of LV Blvd and Fashion Show Mall Blvd.”
