A Virginia roller skating rink erupted into chaos at the weekend after 200 young people and some adults began brawling.

And the witnesses said that the massive struggle was sparked by, of all things, a song.

Roanoke Police were called to the Star City Skate Center just before 1 a.m. on Sunday. They came on about 200 young people and some adults to fight, the Roanoke Times reported. There were also reports of shots fired, but police could not confirm and found no victims or suspects.


Two witnesses, including a 13-year-old, told WFXR that a song came on and led to a local gang tension in the crowd, with a lot of vomiting gang signs. Reports offered no information about what song was specifically involved.

But a witness claims to have seen at least one individual who is a gun, WFXR reported.

According to WFXR, no arrests have been made, but the case is still under investigation.
