2 teens wounded as water balloon fight ends in gunfire

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Birmingham police say two teenage girls were wounded after a water balloon fight at a city park ended in gunfire.

Al.com reports police found at least 15 shell casings from bullets fired Friday afternoon in the parking lot of Bradford Park. Police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards said two girls were hurt – one’s eye was grazed by a bullet while other was shot in the buttocks – but neither teenager suffered life-threatening injuries.

Police said a group of teens involved in the initial water fight, which left the parking lot littered with balloons and water guns, were likely high school students participating in a senior skip day. They said the initial call was reported as a fight, then gunshots were reported later.

No arrests were immediately announced.
