The unthinkable has happened on a football field in South Florida.
An 11-year-old boy practicing with his youth team was shot during practice Wednesday night. The child was one of four shooting victims after a hoodlum opened fire on a Miami Gardens park shortly after 7 p.m.
CBS Miami reports none of the wounded were intended targets.
More than 100 kids were in the park for football and cheerleading practice.
After news of the shooting spread around the community,
parents rushed to the park trembling and shaking in search of their children. One witness who was at the park during the violence described the bloodshed. "Bullets were flying everywhere," she said, "Even though it wasn't my child, it could have been my child and I felt so bad."
Police told the Miami Herald that the shooter or shooters came from the edge of the park and fired 10 to 12 shots into the basketball courts before leaving.
The aunt of the 11-year-old who was wounded said he was just an innocent little boy playing football when this happened.
She said the child is doing better now and is expected to be OK.
Thankfully, the three adults wounded do not have life-threatening injuries. But many parents tell CBS Miami they're now afraid to let their children practice at the park.
Miami Gardens police are looking for a black Chevy Impala seen in the area around the time of the shooting.
