In the ensuing chaos, two people were injured and one person had a seizure, deputies said.
Orange County Fire Rescue dispatched at least five ambulances to the mall.
Officials said deputies have the two individuals who were fighting in the food court in custody.
This is not the first time a loud noise in the food court led shoppers at the Florida Mall to believe there was a shooting, prompting a panic.
Deputies said mall management scheduled a fire suppression system test at the new hot dog kiosk.
The test is an industry-standard test and was done through a contracted vendor.
