INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis Metropolitan police Sunday are proposing a crackdown on teens making trouble near Circle Center Mall.

The response comes after shots were fire Saturday night in downtown Indianapolis.

Fortunately, no one was hurt when someone opened fire at Capitol and Maryland.

Police blocked nearby roads and arrested a juvenile on Capitol Avenue.

Investigators also recovered a gun at the scene of the incident that started around 7:45 p.m. during a busy night downtown. 

Although no one was hurt.  The Chief of Police, Rick Hite, says something needs to be done, to prevent more violence.

"So what we are doing is targeting those young people who don't get it and making it very clear to them that we are the adults in the room. We welcome you downtown and to have a good time but there has to be structure and we are encouraging the mall to participate in that and have structured activities for the young people," Hite told Eyewitness News Sunday afternoon.

Eyewitness News will have more of our conversation with the Chief and his plan to prevent violence Sunday night after the Pro Bowl.
