Mayfair Mall closes early after tumult - JSOnline "They wanted to know where I was; it seemed like they had gotten a lot of calls throughout the mall," said Mercado, who saw a group of rowdy young people she estimated to number around 100. "It was happening throughout the entire mall. It was not isolated to one part of the mall." A Mayfair Mall official said in an e-mailed statement late Sunday that the behavior of a group of young people was isolated and there were no injuries. "What occurred this afternoon appears to be a group of youth intent on disrupting the shopping experience at Mayfair. The safety and security of our visitors are always our top priority. This behavior is isolated and we will not condone it," Mayfair Senior General Manager Steve Smith said in the statement. "To assist police earlier in identifying and apprehending suspects, we made the decision to close the mall shortly before our regular closing time," Smith said. "We anticipate there will be consequences as a result of what happened today." A Macy's cosmetics counter employee said she and her co-workers were told that guns were fired outside the mall, though she did not hear any shots. She said as they started to close their registers, another announcement came over the loudspeaker that there was an emergency outside the mall and that customers should stay inside Macy's. From inside Macy's, the employee saw security officers rush to the mall entrance after seeing a group of teenagers causing a ruckus right outside Macy's doors in the mall. She saw the youths run outside the mall entrance.
