Children duck and run for cover after gunshots ring out during youth baseball game [VIDEO]

In what could have been a horribly tragic event last night, children playing youth baseball were forced to duck and run for cover when gunshots suddenly rang out during their game in Charleston, South Carolina.

Here’s the video:



You see the children scrambling to protect themselves as the gun fire rings out. Thankfully none were hurt.

If you listen closely it sounds like at least two, maybe three guns in this exchange of gunfire.

It turns out the shots fired where from a group of teens who got into a fight in a nearby parking lot:

According to ABC News 4:

North Charleston leaders are denouncing an incident that resulted in dozens of gunshots being fired while youth baseball games were happening nearby.

On Monday around 8:45 p.m., officers were called to a parking lot at Pepperhill Park after learning of shots fired.

Witnesses told officials that multiple vehicles carrying teenagers pulled into a parking lot and a physical altercation ensued. Following the fight, dozens of gunshots rang out.

Authorities added that the shooting had nothing to do with the park or those involved with the sports that were happening at the time. No injuries from the incident have been reported

A police report indicated surveillance video was reviewed at the scene and three vehicles were damaged by gunfire. No arrests have been made at this time.

Probably some teens gangbanging. Whatever it was, I hope police catch them quickly. I would imagine someone is dead or in the hospital with all of that gunfire, so it shouldn’t be that hard to find them.
