The director of security at the Sacramento mall said 20 people were involved in the brawl and four were arrested.
A sign was knocked over during the fight, which some customers thought could have been a gunshot, but police said they found no evidence of a shooting.
Police said many stores went into lockdown, closing their metal gates when the fight started.
The mall was reopened a few hours later.
