Everybody was kung-fu fighting!
A brawl involving 200 people erupted at a Virginia roller skating rink around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, WDBJ reported.
Witnesses told WFXR that a song ignited local gang tensions that led to the fight involving both teens and adults at the Star City Skate Center in Roanoke.
It’s not clear what song was playing at the time.
Nicholas Gilliam Jr. and Marques Davis said they were attending a birthday party at the rink when an exchange of gang signs got heated.
Police initially received reports of a shooting at the rink but did not find any proof of that, according to the Roanoke Times. Gilliam told WFXR he saw a man running with a gun. After the brawl in the rink, smaller fights broke out in the parking lot.
Davis said the only thing on his mind during the commotion was that he “didn’t want to die.”
Authorities did not make any arrests and turned over the minors to their parents or guardians. They were not able to confirm whether the fight was gang-related and the case remains under investigation, WFXR reported.
