COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Columbus Police said at least one shot was fired at Easton Town Center Wednesday night, causing stores in the center to go on a brief lockdown.

The incident was first reported at 5:05 p.m. with Columbus Police and on-site security responding.

The shooting happened on the 4200 block of The Strand near the Macy’s store, police said.

According to Columbus Police, between one and six shots were heard, and officers found shell casings at the scene. One building in the area was hit by gunfire.

Police said the unknown male suspect was shooting at two people, a 22-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, but didn’t hit either of them.

Police said at least one suspect ran to a silver car and took off after the incident.

Some stores in the area went into a temporary lockdown on their own; police did not ask them to do so. They all reopened shortly thereafter.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Columbus Police at 614-645-4141.

This is the second disturbance reported in Easton this month. On Aug. 8, a man was arrested after causing a disturbance inside an AMC movie theater at the center, prompting many patrons to believe he had a firearm. Police did not find a gun in the suspect’s possession.
