On Monday night in South Carolina, a flurry of gunshots erupted near baseball field, sending kids fleeing in fear.
As kids were playing in a game near the park in North Charleston, dozens of gunshots were heard from nearby parking lot, according to video sent to ABC News 4.
Witnesses said the gunfire occurred shortly after a large group of teenagers engaged in a fistfight nearby. The teens allegedly fired at each other after the physical altercation, but fled before officers arrived.
Three cars were hit by bullets, but no one was hurt, police say.
In the baseball game, coaches and players were horrified, with children hitting the ground to avoid stray bullets.
The NCPD said the gunfire was unrelated to the game and that the mayor of North Charleston was “appalled by what he heard and saw.”
“We will leave no stone unturned in bringing these suspects to justice,” the spokesperson said.
Police say they’re also looking into ways to make local parks and playgrounds safer for the kids impacted by the terrifying incident.
Tuesday’s park games have been canceled.
