HOOVER, Al.. - Women pulling each other's hair and throwing punches disrupted Black Friday shopping at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, Alabama. 

About a dozen police officers rushed to stop a fight late Wednesday night at the mall's common area. They later learned it was related to a personal conflict and not the shopping frenzy, but the incident terrified shoppers.

Two teenage girls suffered minor injuries and they arrested others on pending warrants, the Hoover Police Department reported on Twitter

According to the ABC News affiliate WBMA, officers at the same mall also investigated reports of shots fired outside of Macy's, but didn't find any evidence of a shooting.
