A 600-person party in Fort Worth went sour when some idiot started shooting. This is what a mad scramble looks like in the aftermath.
It was supposed to be a party with fireworks.
It quickly became a tragedy.

Calzada said witnesses reported about 30 gunshots followed some fireworks in the center of the park.
Video showed a chaotic scene of people running. As the sound of gunfire rang out, at least one police cruiser could be seen already there with its lights flashing.
As for why 600 people were in the park during social-distancing restrictions, Calzada said police have tried to break up large crowds.
“Ultimately people have a choice and that’s just the choice they made tonight,” Calzada said.
Officers received a report of another shooting about 30 minutes later at a convenience store on in the 4200 block of Miller Avenue, just blocks away from the park, police said. — NBC DFW
Here is what the police had to say about the event later that evening.
Sad to see some trigger-happy moron had to ruin a good time, where college-age ‘kids’ were just enjoying themselves with some fun and fireworks after being cooped up for so damned long.
