Witnesses said some kids got in a fight and a shootout followed.

"We came out here to let the kids play in the park," said Beverly Mewborn. "There were some kids from Southern and Jordan high. They were having a cookout, and then all of a sudden a fight broke out and the guys just busted out with guns and started shooting everybody. There were kids everywhere."

Luckily, no one was hit by the gunfire. It is still unclear exactly how many shots were fired.

However, several cars parked in the area were damaged.
