VIDEO has emerged of a brawl in a US mall after Black Friday turned violent.

The footage was filmed at a shopping mall in Louisville in  the US state of Kentucky.

Two men are seen punching and slapping each other and attempting to rip each other’s clothes off.

It’s not clear what caused the violent confrontation.

A third man becomes involved in the melee briefly before a police officer intervenes.

Black Friday – which falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving in the US – is the single biggest shopping day of the year.

However it has been marred by violence before - in 2011 a Walmart worker was trampled to death in a stampede after doors of a store opened.
