Boy, 10, injured in shooting at Juneteenth festival in Ohio

COLUMBUS

Police in Columbus say a teen is in custody after a shooting at a festival injured a 10-year-old boy.

The shooting happened at a park just outside downtown Columbus at the Juneteenth Festival early Saturday night.

Police tell media outlets that the boy’s injuries aren’t life threatening. He was at a Columbus hospital late Saturday in stable condition.

Officers say a 15-year-old has been arrested and charged with felonious assault. Police say two others also may have been involved.

Police shut down the festival after the shooting and say it won’t go on Sunday.

They say four other young people had been involved in fighting and were arrested before the shooting.

Juneteenth festivals celebrate the anniversary of the end of slavery in the United States.

Let us take all of the guns off the streets where one mans hatred for another puts life itself in jeopardy. True freedom is the ablity to pursue life without being in fear that someone holding a gun and full of hate will end it.

A perfect world is a fantasy. "Take all guns off the streets"? Please spare me. Hatred will still be there and a different weapon will be used--a knife, a golf club, a broken beer bottle, a fry pan--and the list goes on. Guns are NOT the problem. People are the problem. Loopholes in the laws are the problem. Lack of enforcing the laws are the problem. Reduced sentencing is the problem.
