Dallas police are investigating shots fired at the Southwest Center Mall in Dallas.

The shots were fired into the food court at around 1:30 p.m. according to a photo tweeted to us by Antonio Alaniz.

Dallas Police spokesperson Sgt. Warren Mitchell said an off-duty officer was at the mall and heard the shots being fired.

According to witnesses and police the shooting was sparked by a dispute between two rival groups of young men.

One of the rivals fired a gun at the food court from outside, shattering a door.

The officer put out an assist officer call and officers searched for a suspect but didn't find anyone.

No one was injured in the shooting.

Southwest Center Mall in the 3600 block of West Camp Wisdom Road, has been working to improve its reputation.

"That was my first time going, but when I told my mom about it, her immediate reaction was like 'you went there?' So I don't think it has the best reputation," said witness Antonio Alaniz. "It's not the greatest mall. I'm not too, too surprised. The people around there didn't look too surprised."

Earlier in the day police were called to the mall for another dispute. That dispute was over getting tickets to stand in line for new Air Jordan shoes that will go on sale Saturday morning.
