Sound of falling signs prompts panic at California mall

Three teens were arrested Wednesday after a fight broke out at a California mall creating something of a panic after shoppers mistakenly thought the sound of falling signs were gunshots, Fox40.com reported.

Shoppers ran to the exits at the Arden Fair Mall in Sacramento and a few received minor injuries. The mall was briefly locked down. 

One shopper compared the scene to a warzone. The fight included over a dozen teens. When security arrived, the teens turned on the guards and eventually dispersed throughout the mall.

Witnesses said hundreds fled the mall, reacting to rumors of gunshots. Mass shootings have made recent headlines including the Connecticut school attack and another shooting in a Portland mall.

The mall was eventually reopened.
