Black Friday Deals Kick Off Early With A Side Of Brawls & Shootings

A former Walmart staffer said on Twitter he planned to wear his old uniform to sneak into a store early and bag a bargain before others could

The mall was scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. Friday morning.

On Thursday night, a violent incident occurred in an Alabama mall, resulting in minor injuries, and a shopper accidentally threw a shoe at a baby, USA Today reported.

ORIGINAL: Columbia police, Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers and crews from Columbia Fire Department responded to the Columbia Mall parking lot around 11:30 Thursday night. No one, however, was taken to the hospital. Al.com reports that two women were fighting over a matter unrelated to shopping.

Local Fox news producer Steffany Means said on Facebook a witness told her someone threw a shoe over a railing, hitting a baby. No arrests have been made, as no one wanted to press charges.

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

Another video showed a Black Friday fight at KMart, where a shopper attacked an employee, throwing the man to the down and reportedly shattering his hip. In Missouri, a gun was sacked at Columbia Mall in Columbia, Missouri, ABC 17 News reported early Friday morning. The fight was not related to post-Thanksgiving sales.

Officers said they could not confirm whether the shooting was accidental or deliberate. News reports will likely emerge pointing to a shortage of humans going out into meatspace to try saving half a penny on a veggie spiralizer.
