While speaking to KMOV, Frank said, “Apparently, it kicked back up shortly thereafter.” The authorities arrived at 9 pm for the second incident but it was already settling down by the time the police reached. Officers are trying to retrieve the surveillance video from inside the store but videos of the brawl are doing the rounds on social media.

A video showed people fighting and throwing objects. Police chief Frank said, “I’ve seen some videos on social media, and it’s disgraceful. I’m going to call it like it is.” He said there were 10 to 25 people involved in the fight and authorities have identified some of the people involved.

He said, “The fact that you have individuals that might have assaulted each other or had been assaulted, we have to ensure that they are prepared and willing to prosecute,” adding, “But the other thing is that we have Walmart as a victim as well, and I’m confident they’ll prosecute because they have some property damage as well.”

After the brawl, there had been calls by residents to shut the store, citing other incidents that have taken place in the past. But Frank said, “I think the issue is this, it’s that [this] Walmart could’ve been in any place in within this region,” he said. “It all depends on the parties that are involved.”

The chief said, “I will say it’s not isolated just to this location, and not just to this business. We have a lot of different incidences that are going on not just within business establishments but even on public streets,” adding, “And it’s not the point of trying to move it. You want to stop it.” Police said no arrests have been made so far, and no injuries were reported to the authorities.

According to the Disney World blog Walt Disney World News Today, the incident started when one family member left the line to fetch her phone, which she had accidentally left behind. As the girl tried to rejoin her group, another family, all dressed identically in red shorts and white T-shirts, blocked her from taking her earlier spot.
