8 Charged With Rioting Inside Texas Mall

Police have arrested eight people on riot charges after a weekend fight at a Central Texas mall.

A Killeen police statement said four adults and four juveniles were arrested Saturday night following the disturbance at the Killeen Mall.

Cmdr. Alex Gearhart said investigators were trying to determine what sparked the fight involving more than 30 people. Gearhart said there were no significant injuries or property damage.

Gearhart said the dispute began inside the mall and then spilled outside.

Gearhart said seven males and one female face riot charges. She was also charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon.

Killeen is about 60 miles north of Austin.
