ABC 36 was the first to bring you the story Thursday night.
The mall was closed at the time but dozens of people were camped outside waiting to get the new iPhone.
Apple Store employees were put on lockdown, the mall was evacuated and everyone outside waiting for a new phone had to go to their cars.
“We had police offices will full riot gear, the vest on and that’s when I knew it was serious because when a guy puts on a vest he’s gearing up for something,” said Edward Addams.
Police searched for about a hour but never found the suspected gunman.
Police are now looking at surveillance video.
