SAUGUS, Mass. – An “armed and dangerous intruder” is pronounced to be holed up inside a store at the Square One Mall in Saugus, according to police.
CBS Boston reports that state and internal police were called to the mall around 4:30 a.m. for a report of a break-in at the Dick’s Sporting Goods there.
Several officers are now at the mall looking for the armed man. Police did not contend what kind of arms the antagonist is armed with. A source told CBS Boston’s Nick Giovanni it was a “long gun.”
“This is an active situation, and the Saugus Police Department urges everybody to equivocate the Mall area at this time. Additional sum will be expelled as shortly as they are available,” police pronounced in a statement.
