Franklin Police statement on crowd, officers on Gothic Court

We have had several citizen and media inquiries regarding the crowd gathered at the A-Game Sportsplex, 215 Gothic Court, where the business has closed its doors. In anticipation of people and teams who have personal belongings inside, A-Game hired an extra duty Franklin Police Officer to stand by to ensure things remained cordial during the retrieval of those belongings.

As word of the closing spread, the number of people arriving to get their belongings quickly grew. Four additional officers responded to ensure that people, parking, and traffic in the Gothic Court area remained orderly as A-Game management allowed people inside to gather their personal belongings. That process is currently underway without issue.

At the request of the building’s owners, the parking lot remains closed and only those with belongings inside are being granted access to the lot and building.
