“Update: Raleigh PD now sweeping store with long barreled weapons. We are all being directed out and store is officially closed for the rest of the day. Fire and medical are all over the place. Extremely scary but I’m fine. However there are reports (this is preliminary and unverified) that at least one person has been injured. Aside from any physical injuries we are certainly concerned about innocent people (particularly childrem) who have been utterly traumatized by this. Thank you all for checking and your concern “I’m good!”
