------Original Story Follows------

We have received multiple reports from station listeners that the Augusta, Maine Target, located in the Augusta Crossing Mall, has been completely evacuated of customers and staff.

Photos of the scene show Augusta fire/rescue blocking entrances into the area of Target. Listener, Marissa Peterson, who was at the store at the time said people 'went running out of the store'.

At last check, staff members were still stationed on the far side of the parking lot as police and fire/rescue personnel were investigating.
