New Bern Mall Evacuated

Shoppers at the New Bern Mall got a scare Wednesday night when they were suddenly evacuated from the building.

Colleen Roberts, public information officer for the City of New Bern, tells NewsChannel 12 the alarm was falsely activated.

Everyone was evacuated as a precaution.

Shoppers stood outside for about 20 minutes until the area was considered clear.

There is no word on what or who triggered the alarm.
