Shoppers that were inside Target tell me they were evacuated and lead out a back door as a precaution. Many cannot get to their cars right now as the entire parking lot is roped off @KTNpic.twitter.com/z0YvLztVXW
#Update: More LVMPD officers and EMTs continue to arrive to the Target shopping center on Blue Diamond, however the scene seems to be becoming more controlled as the afternoon progresses. pic.twitter.com/4uSLciJDJ3
