A teenage boy faces several gun charges after an incident that caused a police chase through the Tysons Corner Center in Virginia on Sunday night, authorities say.

Officers chased who they believed were three men wanted for questioning in a robbery in Arlington County, the Fairfax County Police said.

The chase caused fear of a possible shooting inside the mall. Shoppers ran for the exits, but no shots were ever fired, according to police.

A man and a 16-year-old boy from Centreville, Virginia, were arrested, while the third man got away.

The teenager faces multiple charges, including possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.

Fairfax County Police and Arlington County Police continue to investigate the incident.
