WICHITA, Kansas — What sounded like an explosion in Towne West mall turns out to be a confetti device.

Three juveniles are in custody for apparently setting off the device inside the shopping center around 4:30 Saturday afternoon.

Mall security reported hearing screams after the explosion. They took the juveniles into custody and called police.
