A fight between two families inside the SouthBay Pavilion Chuck E. Cheese's in Carson led to gunfire in the parking lot on Saturday night. Presumably, somebody must've cut in line to play skee ball.

Two men took their fight outside because fighting in presence of children eating pizza and playing arcade games was far too embarrassing, and that's when reports of shots being fired around 7:30 p.m. were called in. Sheriff's deputies arrived on the scene and blocked off the entire mall according to CBS 2, thus prematurely ending a few birthday parties. Nice work guys.

Amazingly, no one was injured though NBC 4 reports that a door and window were both hit by bullets. Three people were detained for questioning.

Next time, take your aggression out with a ball-pit fight. Sheesh.
