Seven people, including a state lawmaker, were arrested today at a Missouri mall after nearly 100 protesters disrupted Black Friday shopping, according to local media.

Galleria Mall, located near St. Louis, was forced to close because of the protests, mall security told ABC News.

Protesters entered the mall around 1:15 p.m. local time and help their fists up, chanting “No justice, no profit,” an eyewitness told ABC News.

They walked through the mall corridors and entered several stores, including a Dillard’s. The protests lasted nearly two hours.
