Of course, shoppers went into a frenzy. Witness, Angie Vargas was shopping with her daughter at the time and says that people started to panic.
Someone said it’s a shooting and everyone started running. I grabbed my daughter and we didn’t know where to go. Kids were crying, running around looking for their moms and we’re like ‘go over there!’
