Albany-- A huge fight ended with six people being arrested over the weekend.

18-year-olds Damarco Harris, Desmond Hart, and Devaris Harrison, all of Albany, and two juvenile boys are charged with disorderly conduct and various alcohol related crimes.

Several fights broke out at Wynnsong Cinemas Saturday night, shutting down the theater for the night. Hundreds of customers ran from the building when someone yelled that one suspect had a gun. No one had a gun, but several people were injured in the fight.

Now, Carmike Cinemas, the owner of Wynnsong, plans to hire more security officers to guard the theater and are installing security cameras to catch and help prosecute offenders.
