Large Police Response Needed at KC-MO Power & Light District for Large Crowds of Youths

Dozens of Kansas City MO police officers from throughout the city responded to Downtown's Power & Light and Sprint Center area Sunday morning to "herd" crowds of 100 to 200 youths.

The incidents began around 12:54 a.m. near 13th Street and Walnut when a Center Zone officer requested an "assist-the-officer" call for "a large crowd of youths running westbound" from apparently a crime scene.

Reported by one police officer- "some function sponsored by the (KC-MO) school district" at the Sprint Center had "just let out."

The first officer reports "a male in custody" a couple of blocks away minutes later- with the rest of the crowd "scattered."

Several large groups of youth then appear at locations around Sprint Center.

At 1:24 a.m.- "all" the "off-duty KC-MO PD officers working security" in and around those venues (KC Live & Sprint) are called to "a surface parking lot at 13th Street and Grand" where "100 to 150" youths had gathered.

The crowds were dispersed "south" from the areas through 1:45 a.m..

There were two medical calls that could have been related to the roving crowds of youths.

One was a "traumatic injury" at "1310 Grand" at 1:29 a.m..  This person refused EMS transport.

The other was "an unconscious" person at "13th Street and Grand" reported at 1:49 a.m.. No disposition of that patient was heard.
