Fears over last week’s shooting in Fremont Park came to a head Tuesday night as police solicited help from residents in ramping up safety in the neighborhood.
Dozens of residents expressed safety concerns as they gathered for a police community meeting in a parking lot across the street from the park in the 600 block of Hahn where last week’s midday shooting took place.
“I heard the gunshots and I didn’t know what they were, but then I listened again,” resident Roberta Kenney said. “It was pretty scary.”
A bullet hole still marred a home’s steel fence and could be seen from the parking lot.
The shooting occurred about 1:19 p.m. last Thursday in the parking lot on Patterson and Kenilworth avenues, Police Lt. Bruce Fox said.
Two groups of men got into an argument, which led to a fight and then two to six shots being fired, he said.
