Social media rumor leads to fights and a police car being damaged on the northwest side

INDIANAPOLIS -- Several fights broke out Saturday night in the parking lot at Skateland on the city's northwest side.

Police were called to disperse at least 100 people who gathered after Skateland closed at 9 p.m.

They say it all started with rumors there was going to be a 'lock in.'

For all of our Skateland customers we have had a lot of calls today asking about a lock-in tonight we are not having any...

There was a report of gunfire and the window of a police squad car was shattered.

No arrests have been made at this time and no one was hurt.

This incident happened as firefighters were wrapping up at a nearby hazmat call.

RTV6 crews saw people running from Skateland toward the strip mall where people had been evacuated earlier.
