As swarms of people collected in groups around the Mall of America the fights inside the mall built to an intense level. Videos being shared all over have shown the fights get out control to where people were launching chairs across areas of the mall at other people and those people throwing the chairs right back.
The fighting is said to have all started around 4:00pm in multiple locations in the Mall of America. The main area the fight blew up from was in the food court with drinks being thrown on the ground and at individuals and started to spread into other areas. While some mention they heard gunshots during the fight it was most likely the pelting sound of the metal chairs being hurled across the room.
Around 30 police officers collected in the areas to direct as many people as they could outside of the mall and away from the fights. From Mall of America Fight videos you can watch below you’ll see that many people kept running towards the fights fueling even more rioting behavior.
Causes of the Mall of America rioting seems to lead back to rumors of Lil’ Wayne and Drake visiting the mall. Some people said they thought Lil’ Wayne was shopping for Ski boots. Police finally arrested 9 juveniles out of nearly 200 kids and teenagers that were involved in the breakout of Mall of America fighting.
