Do shallots get scapes?

Do shallots get scapes like garlic? I had thought this plant was a shallot, but it’s growing a scape just like garlic. Since I stick garlic into my Southwest bed willy-nilly to grow green garlic, it very well could be, but I’d like to know for sure.
Also, if shallots do get scapes, should I cut it off as with garlic?
In the photo, the plant I’m talking about is the big one in the front. It’s hard to see against all the other onions, but if you look closely you can see the flower bud on the scape, near the top of the photo.
