Fashion Square Mall says it's not going to tolerate the kind of trouble that broke out and closed the mall for a short time this past Friday night.

Witnesses say more than a hundred kids started fights around the mall, overwhelming security and forcing Albemarle County Police to get involved. One person was slightly injured and police found a kitchen knife that someone had tried to hide in a trash can.

In a letter to us, the mall says they are cooperating fully with police investigators and that their primary concern is safety for shoppers and mall employees. Click here to read the full text of that letter.
