Tragedy struck at a park in Louisville, Kentucky Thursday during a youth football game when at least 6 people were shot leaving 2 victims dead.

Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell told WDRB-TV that officers arriving at the park found two black males with gunshot wounds. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Mitchell.

Mitchell said four other victims were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police have not yet made any arrests and are searching for possible suspects.

The shooting took place during the annual “Juice Bowl” youth football game at Shawnee Park, which had to be canceled. Coaches told WDRB-TV they scrambled to get players to a safe place as police evacuated the park.

“There are people who won’t make it home to the Thanksgiving table,” one coach told the television station.

The Courier-Journal reports that children had finished playing football and two women’s teams were in the middle of a flag football game when several shots were fired.

Charlotte Waddell, a cousin of Muhammad Ali, told the newspaper she had just finished talking to the Mayor Greg Fischer when she heard several gunshots.

“This is the worst Thanksgiving ever, I’ll never be back,” Waddell, who has attended the event for years, told The Courier-Journal. “I’m pretty shaken up.”

The deaths push Louisville’s homicide total for the year to 112, which is the record citywide. Hundreds attended the annual football game at Shawnee Park, including Mayor Fischer, who was roughly 200-yards away at the time of the incident.

Fischer took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to condemn the shooting and implore the public to help police find the shooters. He said his thoughts and prayers were with the families of all those impacted by today’s violence.

“To have people with guns so disrespect life, Shawnee Park, and neighborhood tradition is sad and has no place in our city,” Fischer said.

“I implore those with information about the shooting to please call LMPD.”

“The increase in homicides in our city should be alarming to everyone – and LMPD needs the public’s help to solve these crimes.”

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of all those impacted by today’s violence.”

Police are looking for witnesses, but ask anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 574-LMPD. All calls are anonymous. 

So sad.

These are dangerous times in America. Hopefully we can undo what Obama has done at a rapid pace.

Our hearts and prayers go out to all those involved.

God Bless.
