    Eyewitnesses on Saturday claimed seeing a stampede of people at Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta, Georgia, that was allegedly prompted by multiple gunshots. Police have responded to a reported officer-involved shooting.

    According to the Atlanta Police Department, "no officers are injured". It reportedly remains unclear whether there are any casualties.

    ​An eyewitness said that she was at the shopping mall when she heard sounds of gunshots near a cafe, claiming that she also heard possible shots fired near the centre's parking lot, according to the WSB-TV 2 broadcaster.

    Several clips posted to social media from inside the mall show people running from the site of the incident. The video clips also depict a massive law enforcement response, with police cars rushing to the site.

    ​One shaky video claiming to be taken at the scene of the shooting incident remains doubtful, however, as the quality of the video does not allow any conclusions of of the action recorded by an alleged eyewitness.

    ​The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) was asked by local police to assist in the investigation of the incident. There have been no additional details given.

    ​Another separate shooting incident was reported in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Saturday night. According to local police, one person sustained minor injuries from ricochet fire while the suspect fled the area.
