Call it "mall madness."
The Los Cerritos Center was the scene of a scary "incident" at around 2 a.m. this morning over by the "Food Court" that temporarily placed the world famous shopping enclave on a "temporary lock down."
Eyewitness News here in Los Angeles posted this news report about on the details of of what took place, Darsha Phillips is reporting.
If you were in the mall and have any video you would like to share from your IPhones or camcorders, please feel free to send my a copy to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I spoke to an official at our Cerritos Sheriff's Station this morning, and he assured me that it was "not gun shots" that were fired, and the "situation" was quickly brought under control, and no one was reported to be injured.
Some people who were in the Mall told me that they heard what sounded like "two or three loud bangs."
Here is what one of my readers, a longtime Cerritos resident wrote me, who does not want to be identified (but I have known her and her family for over 35 years....)
"My two family members were shopping inside the Children's Orchard (near the Food Court) and heard two or three loud noises and then people started running everywhere."
They also tell me that it was "like a stampede" in that that part of the mall. Several stores reported that displays were knocked over due to the commotion.
"There was a side exit, that people were trying to go out of and everyone was scared," my reader told me.
Keep you posted....Remember....the BEST place to SHOP is here in CERRITOS! Yep! Shop Cerritos! Spend your DOLLARS here in our hood! I am heading over to the Mall in 20 minutes to look for a new "flip cam" at the new Apple Store.
