Ugly Flash Mob Empties Mall (Video) Teens Brawl at the Mall of Louisiana
A flash mob scene turned ugly at the Mall of Louisiana this weekend with several teens fighting with each other and sparking an evacuation of the mall.
A brawl was started by some of the teens gathered for the flash mob and the mayhem that followed sent patrons and workers running for the exits.
At some point during the fight someone yelled that someone else had a gun and the panic spread like wildfire.
A report from ABC notes the panic was "especially acute" just weeks after a gunman opened fire at an Oregon mall.
At that shooting three people, including the gunman were killed.
“Saw people running and screaming I turned around a girl told me someone has a gun I started running with them,” shopper Missy Melancon writes on Facebook, as cited by ABC.
“Never been that scared in my life. People were running everywhere. It was like a movie, but you were in it,” Juston D'Nea Millet wrote, according to the report.
Flashmob planned on Facebook?
"We think there was some sort of post on social media about a flash mob for tonight which drew such a large crowd of juveniles," Casey Rayborn Hicks, a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office, said.
No one was injured or arrested and no guns were found by police.
