MANCHESTER, England — Police have arrested a man at the Arndale shopping center after evacuating the place just hours after the blast at the Ariana Grande concert killed 22.

July McKenzie, who was shopping at the Arndale shopping center, said: “We were just in the shop and could hear people screaming and security guards telling everybody to get out.”

Some people left the scene in tears, while others waited outside the mall.

This is not currently believed to be connected to last night’s attacks.

The Arndale center was rebuilt after an IRA bombing in 1996.
