    Oh I didnt know the shooter was an adult. I guess the same applies to our youth and adults 😕

    Such a shame! We drove by just about that time and the park was full.

    You’re right! However, why do teenagers have a gun? Parenting has a lot to do with the way our young generation acts.

    Cara Sullivan Lindsey

    It says adult in the car and then someone from the balloon fight fired back so I assumed one of the kids had a gun as well

    This park has always been a h311 hole, I remember back when in late 80s a teenage couple kidnapped at gun point girl died and boy barely survived. Sad beautiful park but to close to the trash

    Chuck Browning

    I remember great memories of eastlake park too but you won’t catch me there either

    Sadly Hoover is not immune to this horrible plague either. Remember the husband shot dead walking out of his house to go work out by these cowardly thugs.

    I heard a tale long ago. As was custom on Halloween night. There was a water balloon battle on the mall in Trussville. The police came up . They made one mistake. They opened their car door , and got drenched. They were good cops , and just laughed it off.

    Here is the scanner feed of the shooting… I took out all the dead space and other calls going on to shorten the whole thing.

    I took from it an adult opened fire on the kids claiming their vehicle was hit with eggs.

    Just when I thought this was one of the safest parks I’m proved wrong

    But like East lake Park, don’t go there after dark. If you’re lucky the police will make you leave
