My wife and I made a last minute stop at the local mall last night. While there, a brawl broke out between a number of youths.
Luckily, we were in the shoe store at the time and the store management locked the metal security gate in order to keep combatants out. We stayed put until everything cleared out. We later learned that one of the participants had a gun.
There was a shooting in the mall parking lot right after Christmas so it looks like this is turning into a pretty risky place to be after night.
