Initial details are scarce but officials say suspects in the shooting are at-large. K-9s are currently searching the area. It’s unclear whether there is any threat to the public.
There is no word on the identities of the victims, though police say they are young juveniles.
APD also said there may be additional victims who ran away before police arrived.
“This is unique as far as I can recall in this area. It’s a pretty quiet neighborhood. So, this is probably unusual and alarming to the neighbors, and we understand that,” said APD Officer Crystal McCoy. “We are out on foot looking for evidence, conducting interviews. You’ve likely seen some K-9 units doing some searches earlier today too — and you probably will continue to see that through the evening.”
No suspected descriptions were available.
Witnesses told FOX31 and Channel 2 that a group of juveniles in a sedan and SUV arrived at the park before an argument started between them and teens who were already at the park.
According to witnesses, the argument led to a fist fight and then shots were fired.
APD asked anyone with information to call 303-627-3100 or 911.
“We do ask the public — or the neighborhood in general — for now, just be hyper vigilant. Be aware. If you’ve seen anything, or you heard anything, please give us a call,” McCoy said.
