Police say no shots fired at Washington Square mall

Washington Square mall is operating normally today after Tigard Police determined that a report of shots fired outside the mall turned out to be a false alarm.

According to Jim Wolf, a spokesman for the police department, dispatchers received a call Tuesday morning of gunfire at the mall’s transit center.

“Within moments we had numerous officers at the scene, but there were never any shots fired,” Wolf said.

The mall was placed on a lock out temporarily, Wolf said.

Wolf said that one person was arrested in connection with making a false police report. No information has been released as to the person’s identity.

Initiating a false police report is a Class A misdemeanor, with a maximum jail term of one year and a $6,250 fine.
