2 killed, child among 4 injured after shooting breaks out at Atlanta ballgame

The deputy police chief said an argument had taken place at the ballgame "and then next thing you know, there was an exchange of gunfire."

Two people were killed and four were injured, including a child, in a shooting during a ballgame at an Atlanta park Sunday night, police said.

The violence broke out at Dunbar Neighborhood Center during a softball or baseball game, Deputy Police Chief Charles Hampton said at a news conference.

"There was an argument that ensued, and then next thing you know, there was an exchange of gunfire," Hampton said.

One man in his 30s was killed, Hampton said. Police said Monday that a second victim, a woman, had died.

A 6-year-old was hospitalized in critical condition, and three other people — two women and a man — were injured.

Hampton said "there were a lot of people out here" and asked anyone who was at the game and saw anything to call authorities. An arrest had not been announced as of Monday morning.

"We’re just asking the citizens just to find a way to resolve conflict without weapons," Hampton said. "We’re just asking everyone to leave the guns at home."
