Police said the fight started in the food court and then spread. No injuries were reported, and no shots were fired.
Shoppers inside the mall told the local NBC affiliate that they ducked under counters ran out of the mall as the fight broke out. Traffic leaving the mall is being described as "chaotic".
The Sheriff's office said all juveniles were diverted to nearby restaurants to be picked up by parents.
