Stores in Sacramento mall open again after fight

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Officials say all the stores of Sacramento's Arden Fair Mall shopping center are open again after a lockdown during a fight in the mall's in the food court.

Mall security director Steve Reed says several stores were locked down for up to 45 minutes when a fight involving about 20 people broke out a little before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Reed says four people were arrested in the incident.

KCRA-3 reported the incident based on the accounts of one of its newscasters, who was inside the mall at the time.

Sacramento police did not immediately respond to telephone and email messages, but Reed says there were no injuries in the fight.

Sacramento County Sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos says deputies were called to the mall because of initial reports of shots being fired, but says those reports turned out to be unfounded.
