— There were no shots fired at The Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham on Sunday afternoon, according to police.

Instead, people likely heard a broomstick hitting a table during a fight in the food court, according to police,

Four people were injured in the commotion, according to police.

Two people were taken to a local hospital as a result of the fight, according to police, and two other people were injured trying to get out of the mall.

Hassan McPherson, whose 17-year-old daughter works at the mall in Foot Locker, said she was relieved after receiving a call from her daughter after Sunday’s commotion.

“I’m very grateful. I was a little worried because I was backed up into traffic,” said McPherson. “I guess it just took a little patience. I’m glad my daughter is OK.”

The mall was shutdown for several hours as police investigated. Police said the mall closed at 6 p.m. — which is it’s normal closing time.

Restaurants surround the mall remained open as usual.

The mall’s shutdown also caused traffic delays along Fayetteville Road.
