Four suspects were arrested Sunday night in Mountlake Terrace following a report of shots fired in the Alderwood Mall parking lot outside of Macy’s.

According to Lynnwood police spokesperson Maren McKay, at 8:50 p.m. Sunday police responded to a report of a robbery with shots fired. No one was injured.

The motive appears to be over robbery of a cell phone, police said via social media. No gunfire was exchanged between suspects; only one suspect fired.

“The suspects took off in two separate cars, turning into a short pursuit with police,” McKay said. One of the suspect vehicles was involved in a collision in Mountlake Terrace and the occupants were taken into custody. The second vehicle was abandoned in Mountlake Terrace and an Edmonds Police Department K-9 unit was able to track and locate the occupants of that vehicle.

“All four suspects are now in custody,” McKay said Sunday night, adding that “there is no immediate danger to the public.”
