In a series of tweets Saturday evening from the Country Club Plaza, Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté reported that police chased and apprehended a 14-year-old armed with a handgun, and then arrested a 16-year-old who had been fighting in Mill Creek Park.

According to Forté's Tweets, there were about 100 young people walking around the Plaza at about 6:30 p.m. At 8 p.m. they were "exhibiting acceptable behavior," Forté tweeted.

But by about 8:30 p.m, their numbers had grown to about 125, with many in and around the park, Forté tweeted. It was about this time, that the arrests were made. Shortly after 9 p.m., the number of young people on the Plaza had dropped to about 50 and there were no further incidents, according to Forté.
