Fairfax County Police seeking suspect after shots fired in Tysons Corner Center

Saturday's incident led to an evacuation and temporarily closed the mall.

TYSONS, Va. — A D.C.-based rapper is being sought out by Fairfax County Police for Saturday's shots-fired incident at Tysons Corner Center. Noah Settles, who uses the stage name "No Savage," is wanted for allegedly firing shots inside the mall Saturday.  

The mall was evacuated Saturday afternoon and temporarily closed after multiple shots were fired on the second floor. No one was injured in the shooting, but police say three people were treated for injuries due to the evacuation. 

Fairfax County Police released information on the suspect Sunday afternoon, calling him "armed and dangerous." They allege that Settles got into a fight with another group at the mall, pulled out a gun and fired multiple times. Settles allegedly drove away from Tysons mall in a black Cadillac with DC tags GK0174. 

Fans on Twitter reacted in disbelief. 

"No Savage being the Tysons shooter is really wild," one tweet said. "Shake my head."

Settles is not currently in custody but police say he faces multiple charges including, attempted malicious wounding, discharging a weapon into an occupied building and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. DC Police confirmed that Settles has two previous gun possession arrests. 

“We will find, we will capture and we will hold accountable the persons involved for this melee," FCPD Chief Kevin Davis said.

Those with information on Settles' whereabouts are asked to call 911 or Crime Solvers at 866-411-8477. 

Tysons Corner Center reopened Sunday morning. Though the parking lot was not as busy as it was Saturday at the time of the incident, multiple shoppers told WUSA9's reporter that they did feel safe.

"We have a contingent of police officers that are assigned to Tysons Corner Center every day of the week," Davis said. "Tysons Corner Center is safe."
