CEDAR RAPIDS — Police are investigating a Wednesday afternoon fight at Bever Park involving about 20 young people that ended with a teenager shot.
Officers were called to the park in southeast Cedar Rapids about 2:20 p.m. on reports of a fight involving multiple juveniles.
They found an 18-year-old woman had been shot. She was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Several juveniles were still in the park when officers arrived, public safety spokesperson Greg Buelow said, adding investigators are collecting video footage of the brawl.
No arrests have been made, Buelow said, but “several charges may be filed, including knowingly disobeying the governor’s proclamation (barring) social gatherings of more than 10 people.”
“This is entirely irresponsible and shameful that their actions now involve health care provider resources in the middle of a public health emergency,” he said.
Anyone with information about the fight are asked to call Cedar Rapids police at (319) 286-5491.
