The state press says four people were taken to the hospital after "a foreign" Apple employee jumped into the crowd "to beat" people who had allegedly cut in line.
In response, the crowd smashed the glass front door and rushed the store in anger, leaving those four injured.
Just like in the United States and other nations, there were hours worth of lines for the iPad 2, which just went on sale in China this weekend.
The store closed and has not yet re-opened, and a sign has been posted saying "queue jumping and the unauthorised sales of Apple products would not be tolerated."
