UPDATE 9:40 PM, 12-30-14:
FTM has inquires into multiple sources within the Fort Thomas Police Department. While on scene, we spoke with eye witnesses who live close to the apartments at the corner of S. Fort Thomas Avenue and Grand Avenue.
"The cops have been here three times since 7:00 tonight. I heard it was a gun from the cops mouth (found on a person who was arrested.) Apparently (the residents) are fighting amongst each other and throwing out accusations that certain people have drugs and guns. Police have to respond each time they are called. The usual bickering that takes place every day," said one eye witness.
Another witness said that one of the offenders who was eventually arrested attempted to run from the police, but was apprehended close to the building.
