He tweeted: "I’m currently locked in a store with other shoppers due to a lockdown situation in Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham.

"We’re waiting to hear from security what prompted this situation. While shopping, I saw many people running."

Cops reportedly locked down the mall following the reports.
