It was unclear Saturday night at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, N.J., whether people were hearing gunshots or the noise from a burning car.!/TaylorPopielarz/status/465294543265345536!/TaylorPopielarz/status/465294151152840704

In either case, the mall was placed on lockdown.!/Kerrysa16/status/465296423081492483!/glennschuck/status/465292732051640320!/Sarah0517lee/status/465295508689661952!/Angelalala118/status/465299448537841664

Update:!/BergenCountyPD/status/465328710426447872 reports:

Paramus Mayor Richard LaBarbiera said a car fire reported around 8 p.m. near Macy’s caused the sounds initially reported to be gunshots. The windshield, tires or airbag popping likely prompted the calls of a shooting, he said.

“It appears there was some confusion with the car fire,” LaBarbiera said after responding to the shopping center.

Twitchy will update this post as more details become available.
