BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Six people were arrested after reports of juvenile fighting and heavy police presence in the area of Light St and E. Pratt St near the Inner Harbor.
Baltimore Fraternal Order of Police tweeted #CityinCrisis, saying they were monitoring the situation. At one point it appeared they had closed off the area from the harbor to buildings inside.
There are no reports on any injuries at this time. Witnesses said they believed the fights were serious, while others didn't realize anything was happening at all, one person said they thought there was a parade.
"There were people of all ages running amok just hitting people, and then they'd try to split in different directions to get away from the cops," A witness said.
By 11 p.m. most officers appeared to have left the area and the situation had calmed down.
Later Saturday night, Baltimore City FOP tweeted this statement.
