Local news

A shooting at a block party on the city's west side Saturday night left nine injured and one dead, according to police.

The shooting happened on a basketball court during a children's party near Dexter and Tuxedo just before 9 p.m., police said.

"It's a miracle that not one kid is shot," Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt told Fox2.

"I don't know what the hell these people were thinking with this many kids out here. I'm livid. There's no excuse for this," Dolunt said.

Dolunt said a 20-year-old man was killed. He was not being identified while relatives were informed.
Another man was critically injured and eight others, five men and three women, were listed as seriously injured. The victims ranged in age from 21 to 46, he said.

Dolunt said the shooting happened at a neighborhood party that included a barbecue attended by families with some small children in strollers.

Dolunt said police do not yet know the reason for the shooting.
