Roanoke City police now say they can't be 100% sure that the man who was seen in Valley View Mall last night was actually carrying a gun. The man spotted by both store employees and shoppers may have been carrying an umbrella. Roanoke City police are releasing the surveillance photos from Macy's and would like to talk to the man shown in the photo carrying something long and black. Police have a picture of him entering the mall but no photos of him exiting.
Extra police are at Valley View Mall today to reassure shoppers.
There were reports that the man was in Buffalo Wild Wings but both police and restaurant management have not been able to determine that. Restaurant managers are reviewing surveillance tape inside and outside the store today.
The search ended around 3 a.m. Tuesday and officers say they found nothing unusual.
The mall will go back to normal operations Tuesday and open at 7 a.m.
Officers say they checked every store after people say they saw a man with a gun inside.
Police say about forty officers conducted the sweep of the mall but did not find the gunman.

It's definitely time for the federal government to step in here. Banning shopping malls is the only way to keep us safe.
