Riot forces lockdown at San Francisco mall

- A brawl broke out at Westfield San Francisco Centre in San Francisco on Sunday evening and a police officer was injured trying to break up the fight, according to police and witness video at the scene.

San Fransisco police received calls around 6:45 PM PST about fights at the mall, with dozens of officers responding.

Police said one juvenile was taken into custody; the person's age was not released.

The brawl started between about two dozen people in the food court and grew from there, police said.

The mall at 865 Market Street was briefly placed on lockdown as a precaution, then shuttered for the night ahead of scheduled.

The regime had said 22-year-old Otto Warmbier's coma was caused last year by botulism and a sleeping pill he took after his trial. While they don't know what caused the brain injury, Kanter said it could likely be the result of "cardio pulmonary arrest".

Officer Robert Rueca told KRON4 that as cops attempted to detain brawlers and restore order, some bystanders physically assaulted them and hurled objects at them.

Police said they don't think a hate crime was involved and they didn't see any links to Sunday's gay pride events.

The fight didn't spread onto the streets, but officers were forced to close the mall early.

The cause of the brawl is under investigation.

The mall is expected to open on schedule on Monday, June 26.
