A group of people leaving an event at Triple Threat Elite Dance Studio near a shopping mall on Sunday evening were shot as they walked through the parking lot.
Shortly after midnight as the group was walking together they were approached by several suspects. A fight broke out and gunshots were fired.
Rickie Forehand who is 13 years old was shot and later pronounced dead at the scene. Two 12 year old boys were shot along with a 14 year old boy, 14 year old girl and a 19 year old male. They were all taken to a nearby hospital where they were treated for non life threatening injuries.
By the time police arrived at the scene the suspects had already fled. Police are interviewing individuals who were at the dance studio and are searching for surveillance footage.
“This level of violence is unacceptable. We had children that were shot last night, and an adolescent lost his life for some senseless and unknown reason.”
– Police Chief Melissa Hyatt
