NOVI, Mich. (AP) — A suburban Detroit shopping center has been evacuated following a smash-and-grab robbery.

Customers and employees at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi were told to leave the indoor shopping center Saturday afternoon.

Police say it is not immediately known if anyone was hurt or if shots were fired.
