Eden Prairie Center was on lockdown for about 50 minutes Tuesday after somebody reported a person with a gun.
Fortunately, the entire thing turned out not to be a big deal.
The lockdown began just after 12:08 p.m., when police got a report of someone inside the mall with a weapon, according to a news release.
That took until about 1 p.m.
So what happened?
He was told that particular Scheels didn't service guns – and so he left the mall.
And that was that.
Nobody was hurt, the mall said, and no shots were fired; so all in all, it turned out to be not a serious incident.
The mall has 120 stores and restaurants, as well as an 18-screen AMC theater.
