JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 15-year-old has been arrested and charged with felony vandalism in relation to a incident at Chick-fil-A, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
The incident happened March 1 around 9:30 p.m., after a fight broke out in the area of Orange Park Mall when several juveniles was made to leave the property. Approximately 40-50 teens left and went to the Chic-fil-A across the street.
Deputies then received calls that there were "shots fired" outside the restaurant. When the deputies arrived they were unable to locate a gun, however, they do believe the shots were fired, but at this time it is unclear who was responsible.
