KANSAS CITY — Kansas City police arrested 16 people after feuding neighbors shot at each other and then barricaded themselves in two homes.

The Kansas City Star reports that when police arrived in the neighborhood Thursday evening, several people, including one with minor gunshot wounds, barricaded themselves in the houses.

Officers initially arrested two adults and two juveniles from one house. About 15 people eventually left both homes. When police went into the houses, they detained one other person.

Police took all 16 people into custody and are investigating what happened and if anyone will be charged.
