CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Three fights at the Walden Galleria prompted a lock down inside the mall on Wednesday night.
At around 6:30 p.m., shoppers inside the Galleria were locked inside stores while security tried to get the crowds of young people involved in the fights under control.
They aren’t letting anyone out inside the Galleria right now- instead we were all just let out thru an emergency exit in the back of the store. At one point before this, they were going to put us all in the stock room for safety. @WKBW pic.twitter.com/ja33iC4zb6— Ed Drantch (@EdDrantch) December 27, 2018
