Photos and videos at the scene show at least ten emergency vehicles parked outside both entrances of the store.
A Memphis police officer said investigators are looking to confirm whether a gun was actually fired or if the sounds were from something else.
“We’re trying to investigate whether it was actually a shot fired or if maybe it was just a different sound, but there was commotion, so people ran,” an officer at the scene told reporters. “We have people who said they saw someone with a firearm leaving the building.”
