KENT, Wash. (AP) -- Kent Police Chief Ken Thomas says there were gang members from Eastern Washington and California at a low-rider car show Saturday at a shopping plaza where 12 people were wounded in a shootout.

Thomas told the city council Wednesday he's concerned there could be more shootings in retaliation.

Thomas says more than 60 regional police leaders and prosecutors met Wednesday and agreed to share information and work together to target the most violent gang members for enforcement action.
