Police officers and firefighters working at the event quickly responded to the shooting. They applied tourniquets to the wounded and performed CPR.  

A description of the suspect was not released by police, as Banks said there were multiple descriptions of the suspect and different accounts of what happened during the shooting.

Banks said activities scheduled at the park for Sunday morning have been canceled, but should be opened again by the afternoon for Father’s Day activities.
