On October 6, 2015, at approximately 9PM, Gwinnett County Police received a request to contact a citizen over the phone regarding a shooting that was witnessed earlier that night at Bay Creek Park. The witness said that he was playing basketball when he witnessed a physical altercation take place between three males. During the altercation, two of the three males began shoving each other which led to a fight. During the fight, one of the males produced a gun. As one of the males began to run away, the gun was fired. A portion of the incident was captured on a cell phone video camera.
