According to police, 6 people were shot on Sunday evening during a baseball or softball game at a park just southwest of downtown Atlanta.
According to Atlanta Police Department Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr., one of the six victims had been a guy in his 30s who died after being transported to Grady Hospital, and another is a 6-year-old who is in critical condition at a children’s healthcare center in Egleston Hospital.
He also stated that the remaining victims are in stable condition.
Hampton stated that no arrests have been made and that police are seeking information about the gunman from the public.
“It may have just been a community event, just everyone gettting together. Right now we don’t know any relationships between the six victims,” he told reporters in a statement.
According to police, the shooting happened at 7 p.m. at the Dunbar Recreation Center in Rosa L. Burney Park.
“This is not a place for gunplay, so we’re just asking everyone to leave the guns at home,” Hampton said.
Sunday’s shooting follows several other gun-related incidents in Atlanta City parks over the last week, including what authorities suspect to be a murder-suicide at Merrits Avenue in Central Park and the shooting death of a man at Wilson Mills Park.
