We rarely go to the local mall as most retailers have left, including Sears, Macy’s, J.C. Penny, and other chains. It has rained all week long, so decided not to drive to the bustling Citrus Park mall, and go walking locally.
Well, yesterday deputies were called to Gulf View Square mall, as shots were reported. When they arrived it was a ‘smash and grab’ robbery at Zales jewelry store.
Customers thought the breaking glass was shots being fired.
Today my girlfriend and I walked the mall, saw the store, and the shattered glass. It must have been frightening to witness the noise, and think that it could have been another shooting.
This is still be investigated, and the news channel was not clear if anyone had been caught, with regards to this robbery.
I first saw this on the WFLA 8 On Your Side News.
We are home safe, and sound today.
