MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Your eyes aren't deceiving you. Handguns were on full display at Oak Court Mall.

The 39-minute video, steamed live Saturday around 11:30 a.m., has been shared thousands of times. At least four young-looking men are seen walking in and out of stores spewing profanity and flashing what appear to be gang signs as they make threats against various people.

We've blurred their faces since we can't be sure if any of them are juveniles.

Eventually, two of the men begin brandishing handguns.

Later in the video, the men exit into a mall parking garage where one man pulls out what appears to be an assault rifle.

At no point during the video is security seen.

Both police and mall management have been silent on this, but it's deeply disturbing to people we showed this video too.

"I would be afraid to go shopping in the mall," said Patrice Moses.

"It's getting outrageous now," said Cedric Smith. "And I work in the mall! I promise I didn't even know."

But not everyone is as shocked.

"I ain't really concerned, you know. It's just -- this the city we live in, you know what I'm saying. That's just how it go," said shopper Jesse Lucas.

Asked if she was aware of the video, a representative for Oak Court Mall replied, "Oak Court has no comment at this time."

The Memphis Police Department has not yet said if it is investigating the video.

WREG has obscured the identities of those who appear in the video since it isn't clear whether or not they are juveniles.

Tonight at 10 p.m., WREG will have more reaction from shoppers and mall employees. This story will be updated.
