The Mall of Louisiana was evacuated Saturday night after a flash mob turned into an ugly brawl.

Video captured the chaos as shoppers jammed escalators and ran for the nearest exits as employees were ordered to abandon their stores and evacuate, according to WBRZ.

The fight started in the mall food court, where over 200 teenagers had gathered for a flash mob.

A woman who asked not to be identified told WAFB she was in the food court with her one-year-old son when the large fight broke out.

“People were jumping over my tables and other tables and knocked over my baby stroller,” she said.  “I grabbed my son and took off running but all the doors to the stores were closed.  I ran through a side door into the parking lot and ran around trying to find my car,” she said.

Deputies are investigating what started the fight.
