NASHVILLEN, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police have confirmed a false call of shots fired at the Opry Mills Mall Saturday night.

Around 8:15 pm, police say they received a handful of calls about shots fired and people running through the mall. Officers working the mall off-duty and resources on-duty responded and determined all such calls were false. A police sergeant in the security office confirmed this.
