Catching a sale has once again brought out the primal behavior of shoppers on the infamous day known as Black Friday.

The fight happened on the second floor of the mall.

The incident occurred early on Thanksgiving night when several fights broke out at the Riverside Galleria in Birmingham, Alabama. One victim was treated for minor injuries by Hoover Fire paramedics. No one was transported to the hospital. Police were still interviewing witnesses on Friday, but they did not identify a suspect or disclose a motive for the attack. In the midst of the fight, she said she saw a shoe fly over the railing and hit a baby on the first level.

No one was arrested in the violence, Lieutenant Keith Czeskleba said a statement released at around 9:45 a.m. on Friday.

AL.com reported that the mall was forced to close 40 minutes early because of a brawl in one of its stores.

This wasn't the only incident of Black Friday shopping violence.

Officers have not made any arrests and the investigation is ongoing, according to police. A 19-year-old suffered a gunshot wound while in a vehicle in the parking lot and reportedly faced life-threatening injuries. ABC 17 News reports a 19-year-old was listed in critical condition after an interaction with the police. He said he told his own family to get out and have some fun shopping the sales.
