SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Police in upstate New York say a fight at a mall led to a man getting cut with a knife, a day after a man was shot in the leg in another incident there.

Syracuse police say the latest incident came during a fight at Apex Entertainment inside Destiny USA mall at about 9:45 p.m. Saturday.

Officers reviewed surveillance footage which showed two men fighting and one cutting the other. Nearby patrons broke up the fight. Police have not found a victim.

On Friday, police arrested a 21-year-old man after another man was shot in the leg during a fight at the same mall.

The suspect was arrested on charges of assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.

Authorities say neither attack appeared to be random.
