WATCH | Vine City park fight leads to gunfire, 3-year-old grazed by bullet

Atlanta police are asking the public for help in identifying suspects in a shooting at a Vine City park that left a 3-year-old with a graze wound Sunday afternoon.

Details were limited, but Atlanta police said they were called at around 6:15 p.m. to the corner of Vine and Thurmond streets at the Rodney Cook Sr. Park, where they found the injured child. Officials said the child was alert when taken to a hospital.

Investigators believe a fight broke out on the park’s basketball courts, and tensions escalated to gunfire.

In soundless security footage released by police, the peaceful evening quickly turns to chaos as a meandering crowd scatters at the apparent sound of gunfire. It is not clear where exactly the shots were fired, but it appears to have originated on the courts. The footage shows several people dive to the ground for cover and others hide behind a vehicle.

No other information has been released about what led to the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers. Tips can be submitted anonymously to the tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online at, or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637). Persons do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $2,000.
