St. Paul police say adults fighting on the sidelines of a children's football game prompted its cancellation after someone fired a gun.

Police confirmed no one was injured at the game Thursday night between St. Paul Frogtown Football and North Area Titan Football outside the West Minnehaha Recreation Center. The teams were in a tournament for 9-and 10-year-olds.

Police arrested a 27-year-old man connected to the incident and recovered a gun, but it's unclear what charges he faces.
