UPDATE 8am 8/20

Police have given the all clear at Dolphin Mall. Mall officials say the shopping center will operate normal hours today.


No victims or injuries are being reported by officials after an incident at Miami-Dade County's largest shopping center.    

A large number of police officers and rescue workers responded to Dolphin Mall Saturday night following reports of gunshots and an active shooter.  

The mall in Sweetwater on Northwest 12th Street was evacuated and placed on lockdown after witnesses reported hearing gunshots.  A video posted on Twitter showed frantic shoppers running through the mall.

Another video showed an officer walking through the mall with what looked like a rifle.

Sweetwater Police officials tell NBC 6 they don't believe there is an shooter inside the mall but they were treating the incident as though there were.

Mall officials say the shopping center will open for regular hours on Sunday.
