People in Charlotte and surrounding areas are now starting to wonder if Concord Mills is a safe place for people to shop after a 13 year old girl was shot and killed there last month and after an armed robbery took place there 2 weeks ago.  Even though those crimes were highly publicized and brought a lot of attention to the mall for the wrong reason, things aren’t as bad as they may seem there at concord mills, according to the concord chief of police.  Statistically Concord Mills is one of the safest places to be in the area. The hope is that these recent incidents won’t be a recurring thing and that they won’t drown out the fact that the mall is a safe place to be with your family and friends.


Do you think Concord Mills is safe?
