Little Rock police remove teens before mall fights erupt

     (AP) – A Little Rock Police spokesman says dozens of
teenagers were asked to leave Park Plaza Mall on Monday night in an incident
mirrored at several shopping centers nationwide.
     Lt. Steve McClanahan says police dispatch received a tip that a shooting might
occur at the mall in midtown Little Rock between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. and all
officers on duty were alerted. He says a second false report of an active
shooting came in at about 5:45 p.m.
     McClanahan says officers were already at the mall when about 75 to 100
teenagers tried to start fights. He says none of the Little Rock teens between
the ages of 12 and 17 was arrested, but they were asked to leave the property
before any major fights broke out.
