APD seeks help after ‘unacceptable’ shooting at Lane Field in Akron – Akron Beacon Journal

Akron police asked for the community’s help Monday in identifying people involved in a Sunday afternoon shooting in a crowded park that left two young people injured.

“There can be NO PLACE here, anywhere, where this is okay,” public information officer Lt. Michael Miller wrote in a press release.

A teen and a 7-year-old child were shot about 4 p.m. Sunday at Lane Field Park in the 600 block of Vernon Odom Boulevard, an area where shots fired calls occur more than anywhere else in Akron. Both victims are expected to survive.

The shooting took place near a playground just after the conclusion of a youth football game, Miller said.
