Things got a little crazy overnight during the Los Cerritos Center's "Midnight Madness" shopping event, after reports of a fight in the food court, and possible gun shots, prompted authorities to put the mall on lockdown, according to LA Now.Few details have been made available regarding this possible shopping scuffle, however the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirms the incident took place around 2:30 this morning and the lockdown was "quickly lifted," and shopping during the advertised "craziest night of shopping" went on as planned.

Wire reports indicate that the mall's parking lot was as full as a weekend shopping day, and though the authorities conducted a walk-through, they did not find anyone who was involved in any fighting.
