Roseville Galleria evacuated due to 'flash mob' crowd

Roseville Galleria evacuated due to 'flash mob' crowd

ROSEVILLE, CA - The Roseville Galleria mall was evacuated for precautionary reasons Monday night after about 5,000 people showed up for a "flash mob" inside the mall, according to a fire official.

The incident happened around 7:15 p.m. inside the mall when the huge crowd gathered to perform a spontaneous musical performance, said Roseville Fire Inspector Tom Dodaro. He said there were reports of the floor creaking near the food court due to the oversized gathering.

The entire building was evacuated as fire and police officials worked to determine if the structure was safe.

The group, organized by the Sacramento Choral Society and Orchestra, said they were going to perform Handel's Hallejuah Chorus as a "random act of musical kindness" this holiday season.
