Prince George RCMP were called out the Pine Centre Mall overnight for an incident in the mall. They say around 4:00am, a vehicle was driven into outside wall of the mall, to gain access inside.
Mounties say one shot was fired by a masked suspect during an attempted robbery when he was surprised by a security guard. At that point, the suspect fled on foot.
A witness reported seeing Mounties with guns drawn in the parking lot around 5:20 this morning.
The mall’s facebook page says it hopes to open the mall around 10:00am however there will be no foot traffic within the mall. And only stores that have exterior entrances will be open to the public. Meantime the bus loop has been relocated to Westwood Drive.
Mounties say there have been no injuries reported.
