On the eve of a no-school Veterans Day, thousands of high schoolers descended in the Atlantic Center Mall in Brooklyn to take advantage of the deal. By night's end, two shootings and a stabbing had occurred.
It started sometime after 7 p.m. with a series of confrontations inside the restaurant. After the quarelling teens made their way outside, two separate/unrelated instances of gunfire ensued in the streets.
Meanwhile, a confrontation on the shopping center's perimeter led to arguably the weirdest factual sentence to ever appear in The New York Times: "A stabbing just outside the mall has also been linked to the chicken wing special."
Four teens were injured. No one was killed.
