Police asked members of the public to avoid Raven Meadows in Shrewsbury as fire crews made the scene safe this morning.
Glass was falling from a top-floor window of the Darwin Shopping Centre, opposite the Raven Meadows multi-storey car park next to the town's bus station.
The road was closed at around 10am as firefighters used an aerial ladder platform to make a broken window safe.
