Chattanooga Police Department Spokesman, Sergeant Jeremy Eames says, “There was a large crowd of people out tonight. Nothing that was out of the ordinary for Grove Street on a Saturday night. It appeared to be a block party kind of event, a neighborhood kind of a thing. Nothing appeared to be excessive or dangerous in anyway.
