Also in Reno Nevada, a man was shot and killed in a Wal-Mart parking lot over a road rage incident. Lastly, a man in Tennessee was shot and wounded at a mall in Memphis, the Daily Mail reported.

The New Jersey incident occurred at 1 AM on Friday at the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing as shoppers prepared for the doors to open on a wide range of Black Friday sales.

In another case, shoppers at a Walmart in Bainbridge, Georgia were seen on video pushing and shoving to grab stacks of towels on that were sale.

Meanwhile, shoppers at a Houston Walmart got physical over a $99 12-Volt kiddie convertible car toy. One man even lost his pants during the altercation.
