Updated at 8:00 p.m. of Oct. 13, 2019. Boca Raton Police said the person injured in an incident at the Town Center Mall around 3 p.m. Sunday appears to have been injured while fleeing. Police said the man hit his head, apparently on the push bar of a door. They found blood and hair on the door where he appeared to have been hurt.

Police said most had been cleared out by around 7:30 p.m., but SWAT teams were continuing to sweep the mall and some areas with people still had not been cleared.

A review of surveillance footage showed people turning to look at something, and then fleeing, in the area of the food court. Boca Raton Police Chief Dan Alexander
