Police evacuated dozens of people from a Morris County shopping center on Saturday.
Details about the incident were limited as Saturday night, but the Morris County Prosecutor stated that police were following up on a lead and the scene was cleared around 1:30 p.m. They also said there was no threat to the community.
An Acme Supermarket employee told News 12 New Jersey that they were evacuated from the store and taken to a Chase bank across the parking lot.
Customers and employees mentioned that they did not see or hear signs of an active shooter but were hoping for more information from authorities.
"It would be nice. My parents are kind of stressing over it,” said Acme Employee Kyle Bachrach. “I have friends that also are kind of freaking out right now. They don't know if they should come out to stores or if they should stay in their houses."
