The Waco Police Department said Richland Mall was evacuated Tuesday night as a precaution.
A preliminary investigation revealed that the active situation was actually the result of a minor disturbance. Police said a fight between individuals, possibly teenagers, began outside the mall, and a few people ran inside saying there was a gun.
Waco police began evacuation as a precaution, but said early on it wasn't an active shooter situation.
"Please postpone any shopping needs until tomorrow while our officers work this scene," said Waco police.
