According to reports, the incident occurred at approximately 2:00pm at the Nordstrom Rack located at 185 US 41.

Authorities have stressed that this was an isolated incident and there is no ongoing threat to the public. Nordstrom Rack has since resumed normal operations.

An investigation into the incident remains ongoing.
