The report of shots fired came in around 11 o'clock on the mall. It happened in the 500 block of Main Street.

When police pulled into a lot near the suspects, the three suspects took off near the Omni Hotel.

During the chase, one of the three suspects apparently fired a second shot. That person is in custody. Police are looking for the other two suspects, but aren't sure of their involvement.

Police have recovered the weapon.
