Still Waters Posted January 17 #1 Share Posted January 17 (IP: Staff) · Eight people were shot at a block party packed with more than 1,000 people celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Fort Pierce, Florida, Monday, police said. All eight of those shot were adults and they were ferried to the hospital for treatment, including one person in critical condition, St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Brian Hester said during a news conference. At least four others were injured as people ran for safety, the sheriff’s office said. One of those injured was a juvenile who was hurt as people rushed to flee the park where the event was being held, Hester said. “As the shots rang out, people were just running in all directions,” Hester said. “There were people laying behind cars, laying behind anything they could lay behind. It was kind of hard to tell who was a victim and who was just hiding at that point.” https://edition.cnn.com/2023/01/16/us/fort-pierce-shooting-florida-mlk-day/index.html https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2023/jan/17/florida-shooting-martin-luther-king-day-party-fort-pierce 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
