SOUTH EUCLID -- Police confirm that multiple arrests were made Saturday night at the Sacred Heart Church annual festival, the former St. Gregory the Great Church, at 1545 South Green Road..

Contacted Sunday morning, police said they were still sorting out what happened but did confirm some arrests were made for fleeing and eluding police and having weapons under disability.

It has been confirmed that at least one shot was fired after police found a bullet in a gas tanker truck that was driving by.

Police say that crowds of people leaving the festival may have led to the shootings.

Police from Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights and Beachwood were called to help with crowd control.

According to police, officers from here were called to the area about 7 p.m. for reports of shots fired. There was at least one foot pursuit.

Witnesses told WKYC that the scene was "a mess, with a huge crowd that needed to be cleared." Several said that large groups of teens were gathering at different locations in parking lots near the intersection of Green and Mayfield Road.

There were no reported injuries.

The festival has been going on for nearly 40 years.
