KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Saturday night's double-shooting on The Plaza is shocking to anyone who likes to visit on the weekends. 

Visitors and shoppers are still talking about it on Sunday. 

On Sunday, Kansas Citians spent the day on The Plaza, enjoying the unseasonably warm day. The quiet day was a contrast to the panic in the area on Saturday. 

"All of a sudden, you were seeing people busting into the doors with your heads down," said Brian James, who works on The Plaza. "We locked the doors immediately and called police." 

The situation rattled James and other shoppings on Saturday night, but it felt safe taking a stroll to get a hamburger on Saturday. 

"Today I feel like we'll be okay," James said. "I feel like everyone will be fine. It's just a matter of recovering from a little thing that happened yesterday."

Kansas City Mayor Sly James decried the incident, which resulted in two teenagers being transported to the hospital with gunshot wounds. 

"I'm angry that gun violence continues to shatter lives in all parts of our city," James said. 

Some on The Plaza say they don't feel safe visiting on a Friday or Saturday. 

"I don't want to be involved in that," said Kaitlyn Kueck. "It's just not worth it." 

Police have still not arrested anyone in connection to the shooting. Witnesses say it started when a group of teenagers got into a fight at a candy story.
