Shots fired at Fayetteville mall on Black Friday


FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say gunfire erupted at a
North Carolina mall as holiday shoppers gathered, though there are
no reports of any injuries. No evacuation was ordered, but several
shoppers left the mall and some smaller stores closed.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says detectives are
looking for two suspects after gunfire rang out at Cross Creek Mall
in Fayetteville early Friday.

The first shots were fired around 2 a.m. outside the mall near a
food court entrance. Investigators say several more shots were
fired after one of the suspects ran inside the mall.

Investigators say no one with gunshot wounds has shown up at
Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, when
merchants can make 25 to 40 percent of their annual revenue.

Another reason

Another reason not to do black Friday. I think people get up so early that they leave their brains at home to sleep. What good can come out of hyped up sales, too few items for too many customers, and a "animal mentality" to get it before someone else? This just fuels the "I am more important than you" mentality and causes people to act in stupid and dangerous ways to obtain items that have been jacked up and then put on sale. Give me a break!!!!!!!! Then you have to worry about the thieves and thugs out there demanding their share even though they don't work for it!!!!!!!!!
