"I heard what I thought was three gunshots," shopper Tim Hootman said. "I was sitting in a chair, waiting for my wife and daughters. I ran all over the place looking for my wife and daughters."
The Houston Police Department quickly shot down those rumors, tweeting it was a robbery instead.
The suspects are still at large, but fortunately, no one was injured.
