Explosion at the Mega City Mall

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dylan @ 11:06 am

Fire and hysteria loomed over the mall today as a large explosion occurred at the Mega City Mall Food Court this morning. The explosion occurred nearby Dairy Queen at around 9:50 am., around ten minutes before the mall actually opened.

Two people were killed and around 100 others were injured in the explosion.

The Mega City Police Department and investigative teams from Central City, Astro City, and Starling City are currently investigating the incident. There has been no word on how the explosion happened or who was responsible for the blast. Security camera footage of the incident has been found, but has not been reviewed.

Engles Perez, the on duty mall detective, recalled the hysteria. “I was standing behind a wall over by the food court, eating a donut, when suddenly I heard this bang and felt some heat. On my way out I got a little burned, but I didn’t get treatment because I was a man and didn’t need it.” Perez believes that the explosion was intentional, as he reports that three of the fast food restaurants in the food court were locked in a bitter rivalry. “McDonald’s and Dairy Queen have been fierce rivals for quite some time now. Recently Subway got into this rivalry and I think from there the pot boiled over.”

Two off duty police officers were in the mall at the time of the incident. Officer Aleigha Carlson was by Scheel’s when the explosion occured. “I just suddenly heard this explosion, and it was my instinct to help those still in the mall out.” The other officer in the mall, Nathan Hoogland, reported that, “I saw some “suspicious looking people” over by the food court. I went to inform mall security and the explosion occurred.┬á My immediate reaction was to leave the mall and tell officers arriving what had happened.”

The mall has released a statement on the matter. “Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who were injured today, and to their families. MCM will be closed while we assist law enforcement’s investigation of this tragic event.” The MCPD has reported that the mall will remain closed for the rest of the week. No updates on the conditions of the injured have been reported.

  1. Lead is OK, but you dont need “mall” twice: Fire and hysteria loomed over Mega City Mall today as a large explosion occurred in the food court…

    I would be careful with comments that suggest a cause or a suspect. Unless they come someone official.

    Shorter grafs. Otherwise organization is fine.
