Fights shut down an Alabama mall early Thanksgiving night.

About a dozen officers were called to Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham, Ala., Thursday because of several fights reported in the mall, WBRC Fox6 News reports.

Officials found at least one fight after 11 p.m. on the mall’s second floor, AL.com reports. Video of a fight also circulated on social media. 

Local Fox news producer Steffany Means said on Facebook a witness told her someone threw a shoe over a railing, hitting a baby.

The mall was set to close at midnight, but instead shut down about 11:20 p.m., AL.com reports.
