Police Indict 11 Suspects in September Park Shooting

Eleven suspects have been indicted for their involvement in the shooting at Fichtner-Mainwaring Park from September 7th 2021. The case was presented to a Grand Jury on Wednesday, September 29th, and indictments were files. On Friday, October 1st, warrants were obtained for the arrest of the eleven suspects. So far, five suspects have turn themselves in, with one additional remaining hospitalized. Five others remain outstanding and are encouraged to turn themselves in.

The investigation revealed that this case involved two rival groups, who were known to each other and involved in an ongoing dispute, part of which is gang related. On the evening of September 7th, 2021 two individuals were seated in a vehicle, in the Fichtner-Mainwaring parking lot, when the rival group spotted them without their knowledge. This rival group summoned additional support, eventually growing the group to 11 people. The group planned to attack the two individuals who were still seated in their car in the parking lot. At least two individuals in this group were armed with a firearm.

When the group of 11 approached the two individuals in the car, both groups fired at each other, with a total of four people firing a handgun. The shooting lasted just seconds, and approximately 20 rounds were fired. 

Four people sustained gunshot wounds, three from the approaching group, and one in a vehicle. One male was transported by ambulance and the other three sought medical attention on their own. Listed are the following suspects and charges:
