Gunfire interrupts youth baseball game in South Carolina

A youth baseball game in South Carolina was interrupted on Monday by dozens of gunshots fired near the field, causing spectators, coaches and players to scramble for cover.

The harrowing video taken by a parent, which shows the game stopping due to the nearby gunshots, has been shared thousands of times on social media. The video was first posted by ABC News 4.

Blake Ferguson, the parent who took the video, was recording his son pitching when the dozens of gunshots rang out.

The shooting occurred outside Pepperhill Park in North Charleston, South Carolina, at around 8:45 pm North Charleston Police said no one was injured.

According to Live 5 News, a police report on Tuesday states that a group of teenagers were fighting in the nearby parking lot before they started shooting at each other. The teenagers fled the scene, police said.

“We will leave no stone unturned in bringing these suspects to justice,” North Charleston Police spokesperson Harve Jacobs told Live 5 News.

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said he is offering a $10,000 reward for information that results in an arrest of someone involved in the shooting.
