According to local news, officers are investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred Sunday evening inside The Parks Mall At Arlington.
Around 4:30 p.m. an off-duty officer responded to a call regarding a theft at The Sunglass Hut.
The suspect attempted to flee the scene and ran towards the second level of the food court area and pulled out what was later found out to be an imitation gun.
The off-duty officer assumed the gun to be real and followed suit by shooting the suspect.
The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital but his condition is unknown at this time.
No other injuries have been reported at this time.
Despite posts on social media, this is not an active shooter incident, authorities said.
The mall was evacuated immediately and will be remained closed as police finish investigating the incident.
