SAUGUS, MA (WFXT/CNN) - Authorities are investigating reports of an "armed and dangerous" intruder inside a shopping mall.

Police were called to the Square One Mall Monday morning amid reports that someone broke into the Dick's Sporting Goods store.

The mall is closed until further notice, and the public is being asked to stay away.

"I'm driving to work, listening to the news, bombings and all kinds of crazy things that's in the world. And, you know, right here at home to have this is terrible," one woman said.
