2 soccer players shot in Reno

RENO (AP) – Two suspects opened fire at a Reno park full of children, hitting two young men playing soccer.

Police say the apparent gang-related shooting left the victims in a hospital with wounds that aren’t life-threatening.

Residents heard six or seen shots and say they were appalled at the danger with so many children around.

Sgt. Steve O’Farrell says the suspects shot the victims Saturday just yards away from a playground.

O’Farrell says the confrontation started with an argument, then evolved into a wrestling match and a fight before the suspects returned armed.

Police were trying to identify and track down the suspects.
