Specialist officers are on site to deal with an armed individual and several people have managed to leave the store, police said. Police also asked people in the area to stop sharing images or live streams on social media, for the safety of those still inside the buildings. News outlet AT5 said that nearby witnesses had reported hearing gunshots as the incident began, but police have not confirmed this. A heavy police presence involving dozens of officers surrounded the cordoned-off square, and people have been asked to avoid the area.
