A SWAT team prepares to enter the Square One Mall early on Monday morning

State and local police were called to the mall around 4:30 a.m. for a report of a break-in at the Dick's Sporting Goods there.

They saw a suspect with a gun and ammunition in the store but lost contact with him. The unidentified teen, who was labeled as armed and unsafe, was holed up inside of the Dick's Sporting Goods and was believed to have gained access to the gun section of the store. It hasn't been recovered.

A 16-year-old suspect has been taken into custody in Everett in connection with a break-in at a Saugus mall, police said.

Saugus schools sheltered in place during the search.

The Saugus officer did not indicate when the mall will open and said Route 1 is not affected at this time by the investigation.
