1 killed, 5 injured in Atlanta ballgame

One person was killed and five, including a child, were injured in a ballgame at an Atlanta park Sunday night, police said.

The violence broke out at Dunbar Neighborhood Center during a softball or baseball game, according to Deputy Chief Charles Hampton, Atlanta Police Department Deputy Chief.

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

One man was killed in his 30 s, Hampton said. A 6 year-old was hospitalized in critical condition, and four other people who were injured were stable.

Hampton said there were a lot of people out there, and asked anyone who saw anything to call authorities, because they were a lot of people out there. An arrest was not announced as of Monday morning.

Hampton said that the citizens were just asking them to find a way to resolve conflict without weapons. We want everyone to leave the guns at home.
