Dozens of officers are trying to get a large disturbance under control Tuesday evening.

At least two dozen people were involved in the disturbance in the area of Second Street and Edgerton Drive, near the Kansas City, KS, Housing Authority.

Police said there is an ongoing dispute between two groups of people in the area. Several officers responded to the scene due to the amount of people who had gathered.

Officials said no arrests have been made and police are still on the scene trying to sort out the details that led up to the disturbance.

There were reports of shots fired and a police chase. Police said they were involved in the chase of one vehicle from the scene. Police believed the occupants of the car had information about the disturbance. They ended the chase in the area of 24th Street and Parallel Parkway.

On their website, KCKHA said their mission statement is to help families and individuals with low and moderate incomes achieve greater stability and self reliance by providing safe, affordable, quality housing and partnering with community services and agencies and promoting economic opportunity in a suitable living environment free from discrimination.
