BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Six teenagers have been arrested in a mass brawl that sparked a stampede and the evacuation of a shopping mall in Louisiana.
More than 200 teens were in the food court when the fight broke out Saturday night at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. The mall shut down early for the night after everyone was evacuated.
East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s deputies arrested three boys and three girls, ages 13 to 15.
