Mob of Teenagers Start Massive Brawl Shutting Down Pennsylvania Shopping Mall

A mob of teens swarmed through a shopping mall in Pennsylvania forcing the mall to go into lockdown on Friday, reports say.

Similar attacks[1] occurred in California and Missouri.

Authorities say several fights broke out among hundreds of teens who packed a western Pennsylvania shopping center, forcing it to close early and it seems to be a trend cutting across malls in America.

Several altercations erupted on Friday evening at the Monroeville Mall.

Monroeville Police Chief K. Douglas Cole says at least two people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, reported Action 4 News.

Cole says large groups of teens began showing up around 5 p.m., with the crowds swelling to as many as 1,000, according to mall security officers.

Cole says he doesn’t believe it was an organized event or protest and that it’s unclear as to why the teens were congregating at the mall or fighting with one another.

The one, teeny, tiny little fact that seems to be left out of these reports is that most of those engaged in the fights are African Americans.
