The park is behind the Holt Senior Center on Alabama Avenue.

Kennedy said the VCU is on the scene to assist TCSO deputies, but so far, police have not found anyone who was struck by gunfire.

Potential witnesses are being interviewed and other evidence is being gathered Wednesday, and people should avoid the area if possible while investigators sort things out.
