Police rushing to the scene at a busy shopping mall just a short time ago. Witnesses reported hearing shots fired. This is playing out right now in Oklahoma City. Reports of multiple shots fired at the Penn square mall, sending whole day shoppers into a panic for a time. Police did respond to the scene. They now say this is not an active shooter situation. They do believe it was a fight between people in the mall and they are on the hunt for the suspect at this hour. All of this, of course, leaving shoppers very rattled tonight. And there was another awful scene playing out today, a deadly shooting at a senior center. An assisted living center in Rhode Island. A resident opening fire on workers and on another resident. Schools on lockdown. Businesses sheltering in place. And a robot sent into the center. Here's ABC's Adrienne Bankert. Reporter: Tonight, a shocking murder in a quiet new England town.
