December 7th, 2017 | Uncategorized |

An explosion in the Mall occurred Thursday, December, 7 at 9:54 am.  In the chaos of the explosion, police have yet to identify the source of the explosion, or weather or not foul play is suspected.

Police say the explosion occurred around the food court, closest to Dairy Queen.  No groups or individuals have claimed responsibility for the explosion.  Injuries are less than 100 and none of them life threatening, though there are two identified fatalities.  The identities of the deceased will not be released, though one has been identified as a Male from Sargent Bluff, and the other a Sioux City Female.

“The food court was too quiet in the morning,” a Mall Security guard stated,”There were no employees working, except for those who gave me my donut.”

An Starbucks employee working in the food court came forward,”I heard the explosion and saw a suspicious man run from the court, and out onto a motor cycle.  He looked like Sgt. Fuglsang.”

An off duty officer was identified on the scene as a former FBI Bomb Squad specialist.  He claimed to be in the area of the explosion, and ran toward it when it went off.  “I had to duck into a hallway to avoid the oncoming rush of people, I was then asked to leave the building and interviewed by police,” the Officer said.

The Mega City Mall released this statement following this mornings activities:

“Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who were injured today, and to their families.  MCM will be closed while we assist last enforcements investigation of this tragic event”

Sgt Fuglsang has announced there will be another press conference at 3:00 to expand on what they have found during the day.
