OVERLAND, MO (KTVI)-Overland Police called for help from surrounding departments after a fight near the Overland Lions Community Fair Saturday night. Police Chief Mike Laws says more than 200 young people gathered on the fair grounds on Midland and Lackland. He says the group started fighting on the fairgrounds so officers told the crowd to leave.
Chief Laws said, “We did see a large number of people in the street across from us to the north. That street earlier was full of people 200 or 300 people probably.”
A witness says someone fired a gun in the neighborhood and a driver ran over someone in the crowd.
But Chief Laws says St. Ann police helped break up the crowd. There were no arrests or serious injuries.
