FENTON (KMOV.com) -

Police arrested a man near the Gravois Bluffs shopping center Monday night.

There was a large police presence on Highway 141 near the shopping center. Officers from St. Louis County and Jefferson County were on the scene searching a wide area.

"The kids were scared and didn't know what was going on. It seems like a nice place to live, so when you see something like that, it just scares you," said driver Starla Lombardo.

The man arrested was wanted on several outstanding warrants. 

Police said they heard he may have tried to fire shots at traffic. When he was arrested, officers said they found a duffle bag but not a gun.
