Park Shooting

While having dinner at home, I heard 5 to 6 shots go off at Queen Anne Park near my place. A couple of hundred children were playing a minor league baseball game, as a gunman wearing a hoodie ran up and shot three people with a large black gun. The shooting victims were transported by ambulance, one male victim was in bad shape with a couple of bullet wounds to his back.
Several children were badly shaken up as they saw the shooting take place right in front of them.
