The Raleigh Police Department is expected to release some 300 phone calls made to the Wake County 911 center after a reported shooting at Crabtree Valley Mall and its aftermath on Saturday.
To prepare the calls for release, the department is redacting identifying information, such as names and phone numbers, and is altering the voices of the callers, as required by state law.
The phone calls, as well as surveillance video and witness interviews, apparently haven’t provided police with what they need to determine what caused the noise in the mall that sounded to some like gunshots Saturday afternoon. The noise caused a panicked evacuation and prompted police to close off the area around the mall, including Glenwood Avenue.
Police have said they found no evidence of gunfire, including shell casings or gunshot victims.
Eight people received minor injuries, mainly in the rush to leave the mall, police said.
