ELKIN, N.C. -- After a YouTube video of a Black Friday incident went viral from an Elkin Wal-Mart, police have issued a statement.

In a press release, Elkin Police say two off-duty officers were working security for the Wal-Mart location at 548 CC Camp Road on Friday. At 8 p.m. they noticed a large group of customers gathering around a small group of TV's.

Officers said once a Wal-Mart employee gave the green light for customers to begin taking the TV's, the group loudly began moving towards the displays. Thirty seconds later, officers said they noticed an individual raise her hands and yell to them for help

Officers then saw people getting up off the floor and said many were upset because of the pushing and shoving.

According to police, no one was injured in the incident.

Chief Monroe Wagner said "everyone agreed there was no malicious intent for anyone to be harmed and all individuals left the area."
