Mounted officers observe the armed suspect (suspect #1) walking on Frances St and make contact. Other officers working special duty in the Entertainment District responded to assist and suspect #1 began fighting with officers. She was arrested and a handgun was recovered.
Moments later, an acquaintance of suspect #1 emerged and attacked the original victim. Other officers physically intervened to stop that battery and arrest suspect #2.
A large, boisterous, and hostile crowd began to envelop these officers and a K9 and Handler that were also out on foot in the Frances Street area. Additional, officers were dispatched from neighboring districts to assist with crowd management and dissipation.
