Authorities issue conflicting reports in wake of mass hysteria; Unusual Tweeted photo
BOCA POLICE (CBSMiami) – The Boca Police Department says a person hurt at Town Center Mall was not shot, and suffered a trauma wound, despite earlier reports that stated there was an active shooter at the mall.
Boca PD corrected an earlier tweet around 6:00 p.m. Sunday which said one person with a gunshot wound was transported to Delray Medical Center.
The corrected tweet says the person may have a “POSSIBLE gunshot wound,” and the Chief of Police told CBS4’s Amber Diaz that victim was not shot.
Correction: One person with a POSSIBLE gunshot wound transported to Delray Medical Center.
SWAT teams are continuing to clear the mall and evacuate people. If you are still in the mall, please stay sheltered in place until officers evacuate you. @BocaPolice2095:55 PM – Oct 13, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy147 people are talking about this
