A gang-related fight Friday night at the Super Wal-Mart on South Irby Street in Florence ended with one adult and one juvenile being arrested.
According to Lt. Brett Camp with the Florence County Sheriff’s Office, a group of 30-40 individuals were involved in an altercation that began inside the store and overflowed into the parking lot.
There were initial calls of shots fired, but Camp said that was not confirmed.
“We never confirmed shots fired,” he said. “If there were shots fired, they were in the air. No one was shot at.”
Camp said because of the way the area is zoned, both the sheriff’s office and the Florence City Police Department had to respond to the incident.
The sheriff’s office responded because the Wal-Mart parking lot is zoned in the county, and the actual building itself is zoned in the city.
The names of the individuals that the police department arrested couldn’t be confirmed by press time Sunday.
