Reports of shots fired at Hagerstown's Valley Mall unfounded

(WJLA) - A sweep of a Hagerstown mall turned up no malicious activity after reports of shots fired late Wednesday night.

Washington County Sheriff's officials responded to the Valley Mall just before 9 p.m. Wednesday after reports of gunfire inside a movie theater. The mall was quickly placed on lockdown.

Deputies went through the mall to check for threats, but their investigation turned up nothing.
