Two men were stabbed amid Black Friday shopping chaos at Macy’s in central New York.

Syracuse police confirmed to local media outlets that the stabbings happened around 4:15 p.m. at Destiny USA shopping and entertainment complex.

Police and the mall’s management say the dispute began at a Macy’s store but It’s not immediately clear what sparked the bloody confrontation.

Officers found one man stabbed in the abdomen and another man in the back. Both men are in their 20s and were taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Photos by and WSYR-TV show a portion of Macy’s and another store’s entrance taped off.

Destiny USA’s management says in a statement the bloodshed was an ‘isolated incident’ that’s ‘absolutely unacceptable.’

They say the stabbing ‘strengthens our resolve to remain vigilant.’

At least 10 officers in addition to mall security were at the scene where a witness said a man appeared to have run down the escalator from Macy’s to Pacsun.

Pascun clothing store also had paper towels covering blood on the floor while Macy’s was evacuated during the melee.

The news comes as Black Friday chaos swept across the world.

A 21-year-old black man was killed by police in a mall in Alabama yesterday.

Police have since admitted he was not the gunman they were responding to after shots rang out in Riverchase Galleria mall.
