BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's office told NBC33 News a large fight broke out inside the Mall of Louisiana.
We're told over 200 juveniles were in the food court and in other places in the mall. Deputies told NBC33 News no one was hurt, and no shots were fired.
People inside told NBC33 News they ducked under counters and ran out of the mall as the fight broke out. According to EBRSO, there may have been a post on social media earlier today about a flash mob at the mall.
Traffic leaving the mall is being described as "chaotic". Contraflow in place from Bluebonnet by Chase Bank Entrance and Exit to Picardy / Mall of LA Blvd.
The Sheriff's office said all juveniles are being diverted to BJ's and Bravo's Restaurants to be picked up by parents.
The Mall is closed for the rest of the night while deputies investigate the fight.
NBC33 News has a crew on the scene. We'll have the latest information as it becomes available, and on NBC33 News at 10:00.
